About Me

I am a PhD student at Mila - Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms,
under the supervision of Laurent Charlin and Dhanya Sridhar.
Previously, I was a masters student, then a RA at the OATML group at the University of Oxford,
supervised by Yarin Gal.
Before that, I worked at Oxford Nanopore Technologies, using machine learning
for Nanopore DNA sequencing.
My bachelors was in physics which I undertook at University College London.

Research Interests

I am interested in causal structure learning, decision making under uncertainty
and in general, asking -
what real world interventions are most useful for our ML model and the questions posed to it.
