[Roy Fox](http://roydfox.com/) is a postdoc at UC Berkeley working with [Ion Stoica](http://people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~istoica/) in the Real-Time Intelligent Secure Explainable lab ([RISELab](https://rise.cs.berkeley.edu/)), and with [Ken Goldberg](http://goldberg.berkeley.edu/) in the Laboratory for Automation Science and Engineering ([AUTOLAB](http://autolab.berkeley.edu/)). His research interests include reinforcement learning, dynamical systems, information theory, automation, and the connections between these fields. His current research focuses on automatic discovery of hierarchical control structures in deep reinforcement learning and in imitation learning of robotic tasks. Roy holds a MSc in Computer Science from the [Technion](http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/), under the supervision of [Moshe Tennenholtz](http://iew3.technion.ac.il/Home/Users/Moshet.phtml), and a PhD in Computer Science from the [Hebrew University](http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/), under the supervision of [Naftali Tishby](http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~tishby/). He was an exchange PhD student with [Larry Abbott](http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~tishby/) and [Liam Paninski](http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~liam/) at the [Center for Theoretical Neuroscience](http://www.neurotheory.columbia.edu/) at Columbia University, and a research intern at Microsoft Research.
