Biography

I am a DPhil student supervised by Prof. Michael A. Osborne and Prof. Yee Whye Teh. I am a member of the MLRG and OxCSML groups. My research interests span deep reinforcement learning, meta-learning and Bayesian Optimisation. I am particularly interested in offline reinforcement learning (including generalisation to unseen tasks and uncertainty quantification for pessimistic MDPs) and reinforcement learning as probabilistic inference. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Oxford.
