Hi, I'm Shehroze.

I am a Master's student (MSc, Thesis) at the University of Alberta and part of graduate research at the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii). I work under the supervision of James R. Wright.

Previously, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (BSc, honors) from New York University Abu Dhabi in May 2018 on a full academic scholarship. I have also studied abroad at NYU London (2015), NYU Florence (2016), and NYU New York (2016-17). My undergraduate capstone supervisor was Nizar Habash.

Research My research area is artificial intelligence, specifically the subdomains of machine learning, algorithmic game theory and mechanism design. I primarily investigate the use of machine learning models to simulate and predict human behavior in strategic settings. My current project applies these modeling techniques to the problem of disinformation control on social platforms.

Professional Experience Additionally, I have also worked in the industry as a software engineer and also as a technology consultant; my various projects have involved front-end web development (Vue, React), backend development (Node, Flask), mobile development (Swift, React Native), and data science (NumPy, Scikit-learn). My work, teaching, and internship experiences have been based in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Edmonton, and New York.

Writing I sometimes write about my work, my thoughts on content I've consumed, and stuff I'm interested in more generally. Check out my blog here.
