About me

I am a thesis-based Master student under the supervision of Dr. David Meger and Dr. Doina Precup in the RLLab of the School of Computer Science at the McGill University.

Research Interests:
Although Deep Reinforcement Learning has bestowed unprecedented levels of learning capability to our artificially intelligent algorithmic agents, they are still far away from being easily adapted to the real world tasks such as self-driving cars, and housekeeping robots. The primary reasons behind it are that these algorithms are task-specific and need millions of samples before they can outstrip human intelligence on any task.

My interest lies in devising ways to make them sample-efficient and easily transferrable to pertinent but complicated real world tasks.

Other aspects:
  1. I am a die hard cricket fan. I used to play competitive cricket until the end of my undergraduate, after which my priorities switched to other things.
  2. I recently bought guitar started learning it. I feel there is nothing more soothing than the sound of a good music.
  3. I have watched a few TV shows of which Daredevil Season 1, and Mr. Robot have been my favorite.
Although I have various social media accounts, the best place to contact me would be sttsanjay@gmail.com. My response might get delayed sometimes, but you’ll always get one.
