About Me
I am about to start a position as a Machine Learning Scientist at Rowden Technologies

Until recently I was a Postdoc in the Data Science group at WMG, University of Warwick, where I focused on deep reinforcement learning research (see research)

Before that, I was a PhD student based in the Centre for Complexity Science at the University of Warwick, supervised by Professor Matthew Turner.

More generally my primary research interests are in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and reinforcement learning. One cool project I worked on was using self-play deep reinforcement learning to train an agent to learn to play a card game called "Big 2". Details of the project can be found on its GitHub page, and I also recently added a paper on the arXiv describing what I did. You can even play against the AI here, although it may take a while to load as I am using a free Heroku node to host it.
