Hi, I am Abdus Salam Azad, a Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley. I am fortunate enough to be advised by Prof. Ion Stoica. I also collaborate with Prof. Pieter Abbeel from UC Berkeley and Izzeddin Gür & Aleksandra Faust from Google Brain. My research interest lies broadly in Reinforcement Learning: particularly representation learning for Curriculum Learning, Environment & Data Generation for RL, and Unsupervised RL. 

I have also 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.
