My long-term goal is to build robots that continually use the knowledge gained during their lifespan to improve their performance and learn new tasks with human-like efficiency. As such, I work at the intersection of machine learning, robotics, and computer vision to develop intelligent robot systems with theoretically-founded lifelong learning capabilities. I am interested in a broad range of topics including Bayesian deep learning, conformal prediction, out-of-distribution generalization, and continual learning.

Currently, I am an IVADO Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Mila-Quebec AI Institute. I am part of the Montreal Robotics and Embodied AI Lab (REAL) working with Professor Liam Paull.
