Hi, I am Shagun. I am a researcher and MSc student at Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms. I am supervised by Dr. Yoshua Bengio and Dr. Jian Tang. My research focuses on lifelong reinforcement learning - training AI systems that can interact with and learn from the physical world (reinforcement learning) and consistently improve as they do so without forgetting the previous knowledge (lifelong learning). Even a small advance in these areas would be very useful for training intelligent autonomous agents that would need to operate and make decisions over extended periods of time.

I graduated in Computer Science from IIT Roorkee in 2015 and worked as a Machine Learning developer with the Machine Learning team at Adobe Systems for 2 years. Research takes most of my time though I regularly attend tech-talks and meetups around the city.
