Currently, I am a staff research scientist at DeepMind, where I study reinforcement learning with forays into other topics in machine learning.
My research agenda focuses on finding the critical path to human-level AI. I believe we are in fact only a handful of great papers away from the most significant breakthrough in human history. With the help of my collaborators, I hope to move us closer; one paper, experiment, or conversation at a time.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
