Hi, I’m Phil. I work at Microsoft Research, Montreal as a researcher. I want to understand the ways in which actionable information can be distilled from raw data. I work with methods based on deep learning — i.e. using large, non-linear, parametric function approximators.
I completed my PhD at McGill University in early 2016, guided by my helpful advisor Doina Precup. I joined Maluuba as a researcher in January 2016, and worked there until we were acquired by Microsoft in early 2017.
