My research focuses around reinforcement learning, specifically with regards to automatically inducing hierarchical abstractions over the problem domain's state space. These abstractions can then be used to speed up the rate of learning.


I hold a master's degree an bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the university of Oxford, graduating in 2017.
