About Me

I'm a third-year PhD student at McGill University and Mila under the co-supervision of Derek Nowrouzezahrai and Christopher Pal. I'm also a Visiting Researcher in the FAIR team at Meta AI.

I'm a practicing artist and DJ based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal, having formerly hosted a radio show at n10.as called Focal Point, and have published artworks at venues such as the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris and ELEKTRA in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal.

My research interests cover topics in computer vision and machine learning, with an emphasis on deep learning. Specifically, I am interested in generative models for content creation, differentiable self-organizing models, differentiable image parameterizations, computational creativity, and anything else relating to processing signals in interesting and useful ways. Adjacent to my research interests lies my community goal of democratizing knowledge surrounding machine learning, deep learning, and computer vision concepts, vocabulary, and algorithms to artists and underprivileged groups for the purposes of self-empowerment and awareness of the capabilities of these "AI" models, harmful or otherwise. To that end, I'm heavily invested in community-building activities catered to the broader arts community as well as BIPOC and LGBTQ+ groups.

My current affiliations include Meta AI, the McGill Graphics Lab, Mila, Queer in AI, and Black in AI.

My past affiliations include the Workshop on Machine Learning for Creativity and Design, Element AI, the Computational Vision and Imaging Lab at York University (CVIL@York), the Ryerson Vision Lab (RVL), and Vector Institute.
