Description of Research: 

I am a scientist and an engineer that is interested in moving forward the powerful and beautiful field of A.I. closer to true Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). I believe an important direction is understanding how to combine cognitive and neuro-inspired models, specially investigating how reasoning and learning work together. In addition, I also believe being able to adapt to new tasks using prior experience and knowledge is crucial for AGI to occur. Consequently, I decided to pursue a PhD where I am a 2nd-year Ph.D. student working on meta-learning and machine learning for Theorem Proving at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
