Tzu-Yun Ariel Shann


I am currently a master's student in CS at University of British Columbia and the Vector Institue, advised by Prof. Leonid Sigal. My research span widely across the field of reinforcement learning and computer vision. I am particularly interested in how an agent can acquire new skills as efficiently as humans do.

Previously, I was a research assistant at National Tsing Hua University, where I worked on reinforcement learning under the supervision of Prof. Chun-Yi Lee. I also did my undergrad in CS at NTHU.

My latest CV is available here (updated Jan. 2019).
