About Me

What are your research interests?

I research primarily in machine learning and deep learning. I focus on reinforcement learning and object detection.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

Applying machine learning in products and tools to help make disabled people’s lives easier.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting?

Deep learning has delivered practically all of the most stunning achievements in artificial intelligence so far, from systems that beat us at our own games to art-producing neural networks that rival human creativity. Using this to provide unseen products for disabled people is the most interesting part of my job.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

I intend to achieve sufficient results to improve and provide more innovative solutions in out start-up for disabled people.
