I'm a first year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I do research in Machine Learning and its application in Computer Vision. I'm currently being co-supervised by Jim Little and Mark Schmidt.

I did my M.Sc. at UBC under supervision of Jim Little. Prior to that I received my B.Sc. degree from AUT. You can access my latest CV here.
