I currently lead the Google Brain group in Montreal. My main area of expertise is deep learning. My previous work includes unsupervised pretraining with autoencoders, denoising autoencoders, visual attention-based classification, and neural autoregressive distribution models. More broadly, I’m interested in applications of deep learning to generative modeling, reinforcement learning, meta-learning, natural language processing, and computer vision. Previously, I was Associate Professor at the Université de Sherbrooke (UdeS). I also co-founded Whetlab, which was acquired in 2015 by Twitter, where I then worked as a Research Scientist in the Twitter Cortex group.
