About

I’m a Ph.D. studenIulian Serbant at University of Montreal, where I investigate the generative deep learning models and reinforcement learning methods. In particular, my research focuses on dialogue modelling and question answering . I am jointly supervised by Aaron Courville and Yoshua Bengio, and I collaborate extensively with Joelle Pineau.

I obtained my master degree MSc. Machine Learning in 2014 from University College of London, where my Master’s Thesis¬† was jointly supervised by David Barber and Peter Dayan. Before that, I obtained my undergraduate degree from Copenhagen University in B.Sc. Mathematics, where my thesis was supervised by Christian Igel. I have also completed an exchange programme at Hong Kong University

In between my studies, I have worked as a software developer and consultant on various projects related to machine learning and statistics. Most notably, from 2012-2013 I worked for the high-tech startup DigiCorpus in Copenhagen developing their intelligent physiotherapeutic exercise system. The system is now helping patients recover from knee injuries in several rehabilitation clinics around Denmark.
