About me

Raihan Seraj

Meng Student at McGill.

I am a Masters student at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McGill. I am working at the Systems and Control Group,Center for Intelligent Machines (CIM) under the supervision of Professor Aditya Mahajan. I was a former Research Engineer (Software Development) at Department Of Biomedical Physics and Technology, University of Dhaka under the supervision of Dr. Siddique-e- Rabbani. I completed my undergraduate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Islamic University of Technology (IUT).

Research Interest:

I am primarily interested in using Machine Learning algorithms for achieving optimal control of multiagent systems. My research focus is therefore at the intersection of Reinforcement learning and Control systems for intelligent control applications. Additionally I am also interested to work in data-efficient learning in robotics and reinforcement learning inspired from work in Bayesian optimization.

Furthermore, I am also interested in domains of RL/MDPs for scalable navigation and manipulation, especially novel algorithms that can be deployed on humanoid robots. I also have broad interest in unsing deep neural networks as function approximators in reinforcement learning algorithms that solves the limitation of the need to develop task-specific feature representations.
