About Me

A Young AI Researcher and Engineer

I am a 20-year-old AI researcher and engineer striving to develop the future of technology. With over 5 years of AI experience in research and industry, I'm currently inventing novel AI agents for sequential decision making with Prof. Sheila McIlraith at the University of Toronto.

I have co-authored a paper with the University of Waterloo that attempts to rethink the basic structure of Artificial Neural Networks by taking more inspiration from the human brain. I have also created and deployed algorithms that automatically understand CT scans at Claronav, a global leader in surgical navigation. My most recent research paper proposes a novel histopathology image retrieval algorithm that can help pathologists diagnose cancer and other diseases.

I first fell in love with the field of AI since it was the bridge between both of my passions: the brain and technology. Since then, I have spoken at various international conferences, inspiring many to think about the future of AI and explore which questions need to be asked so that we are prepared for the future of artificial intelligence.

My goal? To spark the next wave of human innovation and help humanity reach a new evolutionary step.
