software developer with a penchant for deep learning
Hey, Irene here :))
I’m a fourth year Software Engineering student at the University of Waterloo.
My current research interests are at the intersection of information retrieval (IR) and ML/RL.
Outside of writing software, hobbies include martial arts, aerial arts and board game nights, and writing introspective newsletter drafts that I never send out.
Some interesting things I've worked on:
Next stop: SWE intern at Affirm tackling the combinatorial optimization problem of people-first BNPL models.
Always down to grab coffee or boba! I feel strongly about mental wellness and existential contentment; please feel free to reach out if you’re in need of a listening ear!
