About

I'm a psychiatry resident and PhD student in Computer Science at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My research training is done under the supervision of of Prof. Thomas Trappenberg at the Hierarchical Anticipatory Learning Lab. I am primarily interested in building better methods and tools for modeling behavioural data.

My updated CV can be found here.
