I am a Ph.D. candidate at University of Toronto under the supervision of Professor Scott Sanner, and a member of the Data-Driven Decision Making Lab (D3M). I am also a Postgraduate Affiliate with the Vector Institute. Previously, I have completed my BASc. in Industrial Engineering from University of Toronto (2014) with emphasis on Operations Research, and earned my MASc. from University of Toronto (2016) as a member of the Toronto Intelligent Decision Engineering Laboratory (TIDEL) on the topic of Mixed-Integer Linear Programming Models for Least-Commitment Partial-Order Planning under the supervision of Professor J. Christopher Beck and Professor Andre Augusto Cire. My main research focus is on the theory and the application of Operations Research techniques and Deep Neural Networks to our Data-Driven Automated Planning framework.
