Shivam Patel

Visiting Researcher

I work with the Climate Change AI group supervised by Prof Yoshua Bengio and Dr S. Karthik Mukkavilli. My work focuses on building multi-agent deep reinforcement learning frameworks in modelling economies and their impact on climate change.

Along with deep reinforcement learning my interest broadly lies in applying deep learning techniques to various domains such as Medicine, Biology, Economics, Finance and Astronomy. On the theoretical side of machine learning, I am interested in problems such as hyperparameter determination and in the area of non-convex optimization.

Previously, I was at Caltech, working with Prof David Van Valen developing deep learning techniques for Real-time 3D Segmentation for cell segmentation in florescence microscopy. I am a senior undergraduate majoring in Computer Engineering at Nirma University in India.
