Reyhane Askari Hemmat
I'm a PhD candidate at Mila lab, Université de Montréal. I work under the supervision of Ioannis Mitliagkas and Nicolas Le Roux. Prior to my PhD, I received my Masters in Computer Science from Université de Montréal and worked for two years at Mila on several open-source software for deep learning such as Theano, Orion and Cortex. I also did my bachelors in Computer Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic).
My research interests are in the intersection of machine learning, large scale optimization and game theory. I am the winner of Borealis AI Graduate Fellowship, and the FRQNT three years 'Bourse de doctorat en recherche'.
I co-organized the Bridging Game Theory and Deep Learning workshop at NeurIPS 2019. I also co-organize Mila's Deep Learning Theory Group and MTL MLOpt.
