Mohammad Pezeshki

I am a PhD candidate at Mila, Université de Montréal. I work under the supervision of Prof. Aaron Courville and Prof. Yoshua Bengio. I also closely work with Prof. Guillaume Lajoie and Prof. Doina Precup.

I have received my Masters in Computer Science and my Bachelors in Computer Engineering from Université de Montréal and Tehran Polytechnic, respectively. I have also had the chance to do research internships at Twitter, Microsoft, and Google DeepMind during my PhD studies.

I am interested in theories of machine learning from a theoretical perspective. I actively follow cutting edge researches on representation learning, optimization, and dynamical systems. My current focus is on understanding the dynamics of gradient descent in neural networks and its generalization behavior.

Thanks Jon!
