I am a PhD student at the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre, at City, University of London. I am currently studying how to design artificial agents that use the Free Energy Principle to guide interactions with their environments, under the supervision of Michaël Garcia-Ortiz, Eduardo Alonso and Esther Mondragón. I am particularly interested in the integration of Deep Learning models with new Reinforcement Learning techniques, Evolutionary Game Theory and the relationship between Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience.
Before joining the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre, I received an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from City, University of London, and a BSc in Economics from UCL. A common theme in both Artificial Intelligence and Economics is their tendency to incorporate insights for other disciplines, including psychology, biology, philosophy, and neuroscience. For me, being forced to take an interdisciplinary approach in both fields is what makes them interesting.
I worked as an academic tutor and was part of a team at HSBC responsible for collecting and analysing large amounts of data to deliver insights to management. Outside of research, I enjoy teaching, poker and am trying to become qualified diver.
