I am a PhD student at the AI lab of VU Brussel, working with Prof. Ann Nowe. My research is primarily in reinforcement learning. I am interested in designing and analyzing efficient and scalable learning architectures, which requires many ingredients, such as reward shaping, ensembles and off-policy learning. I am also involved in an assistive exoskeleton project, where I am responsible for providing the high-level control, and where I do a lot of prediction.
Before this, I received my Masters degree at Oregon State University with the amazing Prof. Cora Borradaile, working on max flow algorithms in planar graphs.

My CV is can be found here, if you are into that kind of a thing.
