I’m a PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, within the Healthy AI Lab advised by Fredrik D. Johansson working in machine learning for improved sequential decision making in healthcare, with historical data. My research is funded by the The Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP).
Prior to joining Chalmers, I did a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, Africa in Kigali, Rwanda. During my masters, I did a research internship at IBM Research’s Science for Social Good where my main advisor was Dr. Kush R. Varshney. I did my bachelors at Dedan Kimathi University of Technology in Nyeri, Kenya, where I graduated with double degrees in BSc. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and BSc. Telecommunication and Information Engineering. For my bachelor thesis, I did research with Dr. Ciira Maina.
I enjoy hiking, climbing and dancing in my free time.
My research encompasses causal inference and sequential decision making methods in multi-armed bandits and reinforcement learning.
