About Me

Graduate Student @ University of Guelph

I am a student who is interested in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Guelph under Graham Taylor, a member of the Machine Learning Research Group and the Vector Institute. I have a BSc in Computer Science from Brock University. During my undergraduate studies I attended Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea as an exchange student. I speak 2.5 languages; speaking English and Hungarian fluently, while being in the process of learning Korean.

Research and Interests

My current research uses Generative Adversarial Networks to produce satellite images from binary masks to be used for data augmentation and dataset expansion. This research aims to help solve the problem of training networks in low data environments.

I am interested in using Machine Learning and Deep Learning in practical applications involving images, video, audio and natural language.
