Ryan D'Orazio


I am a PhD student at MILA and the Université de Montréal within the DIRO department. I am co-supervised by Ioannis Mitliagkas and Pierre-Luc Bacon. My current research interests include (but are not limited to), online learning, optimization, reinforcement learning and algorithmic game theory. Previously, I completed my masters in statistical machine learning at the University of Alberta under the co-supervision of James Wright and Matthew Taylor where I worked on combining function approximation and online learning for saddle point computation. Before attending the University of Alberta I completed my bachelor of science in actuarial mathematics at Concordia University and worked as an actuarial analyst for several insurance companies.
