I am a Ph.D. student in the knowledge representation group at the University of Toronto. I am also a member of the Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association and the Vector Institute. My supervisor is Sheila McIlraith. I did my undergrad in Computer Engineering and MSc in Computer Science at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC). My master's degree was co-supervised by Alvaro Soto and Jorge Baier. While I was at PUC, I taught the undergraduate course "Introduction to Computer Programming Languages."

Roy Fox (UC Irvine)

[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.

I am a second year PhD student in Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University. I completed a BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science at McGill University where I worked on a project with Tony Humphries. Before returning to graduate school I spent two and a half years teaching mathematics, science, and English in a small community in rural Ghana with the Peace Corps, and after worked at National Life as a financial analyst. In general, I am interested in machine learning, statistics, and differential equations. My current work is on the theoretical underpinnings of reinforcement learning (RL) in metric spaces. These are natural models for systems involving real-time sequential decision making over continuous spaces. To facilitate RL's use on memory-constrained devices there are many challenges. The first is learning an "optimal" discretization - trading off memory requirements and algorithmic performance. The second is learning the metric when it is not clear what metric the problem is optimal to learn in. This balances the two fundamental requirements of implementable RL - approximating the optimal policy and statistical complexity for the number of samples required to learn the near optimal policy.

I’m a second year Ph.D. student working with Professor Doina Precup and Professor Xiao-Wen Chang on the cross area of reinforcement learning and matrix computations. I’m currently interested in approximate dynamic programming and Krylov subspace methods. I'm currently working on constructiong basis functions for value function approximation in model-based reinforcement learning.
