Glen Berseth

I am an assistant professor at the University de Montreal and Mila. My research explores how to use deep learning and reinforcement learning to develop generalist robots.

I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) working in the Robotic AI & Learning (RAIL) lab with Sergey Levine. My research combines deep learning and reinforcement learning on high-dimensional control problems. I received my PhD at the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia in 2019 where I worked on reinforcement learning, machine learning and motion planning with Michiel van de Panne. I received my BSc degree in Computer Science from York University in 2012 and my MSc from York University under the supervision of Petros Faloutsos in 2014 for optimization and authoring crowd simulations. I have published in a wide range of areas including computer animation, machine learning and robotics and am a NSERC scholarship award winner. I have also worked at IBM (2012) and with Christopher Pal at ElementAI (2018). You can find a list of projects and publications here.
