Machine Learning PhD Student at Georgia Tech


Hi! I’m a first-year Machine Learning PhD student at Georgia Tech working with James Hays and also currently collaborating with Charlie Kemp. I received my BASc in Engineering Science with Honours from the University of Toronto, where I specialized in Machine Intelligence.

Here’s my CV.

Research Interests

My interests lie at the intersection of computer vision and machine learning. My goal is to build models capable of understanding the visual world through multi-modal data and synthesizing it in digital form.

Topics include:

  • Multi-modal learning
  • Representation learning
  • Video understanding
  • Generative modelling
