Razvan Pascanu

I'm currently a Research Scientist at DeepMind

I grew up in Romania and studied computer science and electrical engineering for my undergrads in Germany. I got my MSc from Jacobs University, Bremen in 2009 under the supervision of prof. Herbert Jaeger. I hold a PhD from University of Montreal (2014), which I did under the supervision of prof. Yoshua Bengio.  My PhD thesis can be found here.

I was involved in developing Theano and help write some of the deep learning tutorials for Theano. I've published several papers on topics surrounding deep learning and deep reinforcement learning (see my scholar page). I'm one of the organizers of EEML (www.eeml.eu) and part of the organizers of AIRomania. As part of the AIRomania community, I have organized RomanianAIDays since 2020, and helped build a course on AI aimed at high school students.  

Specifically, my research interests include topics as:
