Bonus material: some of my favourite music, books (also here, here, and here), and blogs (last one).

I am currently a research engineer at Microsoft Research in Montreal, Canada. I'm interested in building intelligent systems that are capable of generating robust world representations and reasoning over those representations. Currently, I'm very curious about the interplay between language and representation.

News: I will be returning to school in Fall 2020 as a graduate student at the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (Universite de Montreal) under the supervision of Laurent Charlin.

Previously, I was an undergraduate student at Queen's University, Canada, where I completed a Bachelor of Computing in computer science and Honors Bachelor of Arts in philosophy - with a particular interest in logic, language, and the philosophy of science.

I was fortunate enough to spend my summer of 2017 working alongside Professor Pascale Fung at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), generously supported by the Cansbridge Fellowship .

Prior to that, my summers were spent riding in helicopters, planting trees, and adventuring across northern Canada.
