About me

I am a researcher at Polytechnique Montréal, Canada. I am affiliated to the Data Science for Real-Time Decision Making Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC), and the MILA research institute on artificial intelligence. The question that motivates my research is: can machines think?

My broad research interests include:

  • probabilistic graphical models and their theoretical properties (my PhD Thesis)
  • structured prediction, in particular multi-label classification
  • machine learning for combinatorial optimization (see our Ecole library)
  • causality, in particular in the context of reinforcement learning

I am proud to serve the scientific community, and I have been rewarded NeurIPS 2019 best reviewer (top 40%), ICML 2020 best reviewer (top 30%), NeurIPS 2020 top reviewer (top 10%), ICLR 2021 outstanding reviewer (top 10%), and ICML 2021 expert reviewer.
