Master's Candidate @ UdeM & Mila (Robotics and AI)

Hi there! 😃

My name is Ali and I’m an M.Sc. candidate at the University of Montréal & Mila supervised by Prof. Liam Paull at the Montreal Robotics and Embodied AI Lab, where I conduct research involving robotics and deep learning.

I am currently actively seeking out internship opportunities for the summer of 2022. You can take a look at my resume here. If you’d like to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to email me at alihusein.kuwajerwala@x, x=umontreal.ca

Previously, I was a student researcher at the Robot, Vision and Learning Lab at the University of Toronto supervised by Prof. Florian Shkurti where I worked on visual navigation for mobile robots. I’ve also worked in software engineering roles at Epson and Liquid Analytics.

My undergrad was at the Univeristy of Toronto where I studied CS & Math, and also worked as a Teaching Assistant. During my time there I was co-founder of the UTM Robotics Club, and a recpient of the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award.

My research interests lie at the intersection between robotics and artificial intelligence. I am the joint first author on a robotics paper (you can watch a short video about it here) that’s currently under review for the ICRA 2022 conference.

I’ve also worked on a few fun coding projects which you can look at via my github profile.

When I’m not staring at a screen all day, you can find me training jiu-jitsu, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, doodling, and/or chatting with wonderful people on my podcast. ✌️
