I took part in the Deep learning Indaba 2017 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I am a machine learning scientist at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I have completed my PhD studies (with distinction) in Computer Science, at TU Wien, Austria (May 2020). My PhD dissertation was co-advised by Prof. Radu Grosu (TU Wien) and Prof. Daniela Rus (MIT).
My research focuses on developing interpretable deep learning and decision-making algorithms.
