Quick Picks

[Press] An article about our recent NIPS Deep RL Symposium paper got published in MotherBoard. “Researchers Trained an AI Wormbot To ‘Balance’ a Pole on Its Tail” [Link]

I presented a paper at the Deep Reinforcement Learning Symposium at NIPS 2017, and two papers at the workshop on Worm’s Neural Information Processing.

I am a visiting research scholar at MIT CSAIL, working on developing interpretable machine learning algorithms for autonomous driving, with Daniela Rus.

I co-chaired a NIPS 2017 workshop on Worm’s Neural Information Processing (WNIP).

I attended ICML 2017 in Sydney and presented at WCB 2017. [slides] [poster]

I also attended IJCAI 2017 in Melbourne, and presented at BOOM 2017, [slides] [poster] Won the Best Poster Award! [link]

I took part in the Deep learning Indaba 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

About me

I am a PhD research assistant in Computer Science at the Institute of Computer EngineeringTU Wien

My main research focus is on developing new machine-learning algorithms.

I am currently collaborating with organizations such as Infineon, OpenWorm, IST Austria (Henzinger Group) and  IMP (Zimmer Group)

and with professionals such as Radu Grosu, Thomas Henzinger, Alessio Lomuscio and Manuel Zimmer

I spent four wonderful months as a visiting graduate student at VAS Group at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London.

I completed my M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.

Before that I did a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering – Electronics at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad.
