My PhD research is in reinforcement learning applied to scenarios in the energy industry. By addressing challenges of deploying real-world autonomous agents such as reward function formulation, learning from static datasets in an offline setting and satisfying safety constraints, I hope to make progress towards the adoption of RL in industry.
