I am a PhD candidate and a machine learning enthusiast in the “Human Computer Interactions” and “Robotics and Control” laboratories, at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

I am passionate about data science, machine learning, and data visualization and currently on a path towards reinforcement learning solutions for control problems in biomechanical systems, which is in line with my background in medicine.

I am a builder who is entertained when his creations are used by other developers or clients, even if it’s a simple weight converter tool. I enjoy every bit of software engineering with programming languages being mere tools that help me transform my thoughts into applications.

Main research interests: Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Data science, Image Processing, Computer Vision
