I'm currently a research scientist at DeepMind.
My research interests focus around deep learning and deep reinforcement learning on topics such as optimization, memory and recurrent models, theory behind deep networks, continual learning, multitask learning, etc.
I grew up in Romania and studied (undergrad) computer science in Germany. I got my MSc from Jacobs University, Bremen in 2009. I hold a PhD from University of Montreal (2014), which I did under the supervision of prof. Yoshua Bengio. My PhD thesis can be found here.
