Hi, I am Abdus Salam Azad, a third-year Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley working with Prof. Ion Stoica. My research interest lies in Reinforcement Learning: specially representation learning for Curriculum Learning, Environment Generation, and Unsupervised RL.

Previously I have worked on Program Analysis for Auto-Parallelizing Python Programs and Genetic Algorithms to solve complex real-world Combinatorial Optimization problems. I completed my Bachelor of Science in July 2014 and Masters of Science in January 2017 from
CSE, BUET. You can find my CV here (updated December 2021).

Thanks for visiting my site. Have a good day.
