If you can't stop thinking about it, don't stop working for it!
Hello there! I'm Mandana! Currently a PhD student at Mila and Reasoning and Learning Lab at McGill.
In case you are curious about the meaning behind my first name, it is coming from a heroic figure of Iran's history. It means eternal or never-ending in Persian but of course that's not the case for me! :)
I have a Master in computer science where I got to work on Meta-learning. I'm mainly interested in reinforcement learning and developmental learning in brain and combining both.
While not doing research, I enjoy drawing, painting, singing and cooking! Feel free to reach out if you like to share ideas! :)
To learn more about my background please find my resume below.

My research interests lie in the area of Reinforcement learning in the context of human developmental learning. Also interested in computational neuroscience and psychology.
Concordia University, Computer Science
Working on Transfer Learning and the ability of learning to learn (Meta-Learning). I did research on applying meta-learning on TCGA dataset and improving the performance of baselines including prototypical network andr MAML on a group of genomics tasks.
