I am an associate professor at ÉTS and an adjunct professor at McGill. Before joining ÉTS, I was a postdoctoral fellow working with Professor Doina Precup at McGill/Mila. Before my postdoc, I was a researcher at Microsoft Research Montréal.
I received my Ph.D. from Polytechnique Montréal/Mila in 2016 under the supervision of Professor Chris Pal. During my Ph.D. studies, I worked on computer vision and deep learning applied to emotion recognition, object tracking and knowledge distillation.
My current research interests are:

  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Multi-modal Learning
  • Medical Imaging
  • Climate Modelling and Disaster Response
