Student Post-Doc, Université de Montréal

I am a post-doc working with Prof. Yoshua Bengio on exploration and knowledge-seeking learning algorithms for
drug discovery. I am broadly interested in how we can leverage structural assumptions about data generating processes to make flexible machine learning models generalize beyond the observed distribution of training data. To this end, I have worked on using deep learning for causal inference, and on designing deep network architectures for permutation invariant data.
