ABOUT ME

I am a machine learning research scientist at Simmunome Inc.

I am also a PhD student at McGill University under the supervision of Sergey Norin. My research topics are graph theory and combinatorics.

I previously completed a Master's degree in mathematics at Université de Montréal under the supervision of Gena Hahn and Ben Seamone. My Master's research was mainly focused on various aspects of the game of cops and robbers.

HOBBIES

When I'm not doing math, I'm usually rock climbing or hiking. Here are a few pictures.
