I am from Laval, Quebec, Canada and currently reside there. After graduating from my high school, Royal West Academy, in 2016, I obtained a DEC in Pure and Applied Science from Vanier College in 2018. There, I took part in numerous extra-curricular activities, such as the Key Society, Tech Club, and LaunchBox, the latter of which is a program helping students build innovative startups. My team’s project, MathBuddy, a system which uses handwriting recognition to correct students’ mistakes on math problems, won 1st place in the LaunchBox Demo Day competition, where we debuted our prototype.
Currently, I am in the Honours Mathematics and Computer Science program at McGill University. I have been conducting research in natural language processing under Professor Jackie Cheung at Mila, the Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute, since May 2019. I am also an Academic Lecturer at the McGill Artificial Intelligence Society for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, where I co-teach the MAIS 202 bootcamp, an introductory machine learning course for undergraduate students with no prior ML experience.
