I currently spend my time getting reinforcement learning working in real world applications. Previously, I did my PhD in computer science (machine learning) at LIP6. I worked on using reinforcement learning for feature selection in supervised learning problems.
Before that, I went to university at INSA Lyon, where I specialised in software engineering, and graduated with an M.Eng. in September 2010.
While there, I did a lot of cool things such as experimental rocketry and helping out at the Karnaval Humanitaire.
I also did a couple stints abroad:
+ I spent a month interning at a valve & regulator company in Shanghai.
+ Summer of 2008 I interned at Yahoo! in Sunnyvale, CA.
+ Fall 2009 I did a semester abroad at IIT Madras in Chennai, India.
