👋, I'm Michael.
- I'm a Master's student at the University of Alberta doing AI research ∈ (Natural Language Processing ∩ Computer Vision).
- I work on grounding language within the visual world with neural models that generate meaningful & useful concept representations from images and text. Future-wise, I look to build systems that holistically understand the world and lead to transformative AI.
- I am grateful to be supervised by Greg Kondrak. I also work with Lili Mou and Erik Rosolowsky.
- To a lesser extent, I'm interested in Quantum Computing
⚛️and Astronomy 🌌.
- I was previously a Software Engineer at Helicarrier, where I did some especially cool work, and TeamApt.
