Jean Harb
I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at McGill University, supervised by Doina Precup. I am a member of the Reasoning and Learning Lab. During the Spring of 2017, I will be a research intern at OpenAI.

My interests are in reinforcement learning and deep learning. I'm currently focussing on exploration and temporal abstraction within the deep RL setting.

During the summer of 2015, I interned at Maluuba as a research scientist. I mainly worked on natural language processing using deep learning.

Here is my CV. I can be reached at jean.merheb-harb[at]
