I am currently a 5th year PhD student at Mila, Université de Montréal, working under the supervision of Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville. Prior to starting my PhD, I studied applied mathematics at Belarusian State University and did an MSc in computer science at Jacobs University Bremen with Herbert Jaeger. I have also interned at Google Brain with Quoc Le and at DeepMind with Edward Grefenstette.
