Edward Beeching

I am second year PhD student at INSA Lyon.
I work and study in the INRIA CHROMA team, researching Deep Reinforcement Learning for robotic control.
My supervisors are Christian Wolf, Jilles Dibangoye and Olivier Simonin
My current area of research applies Deep RL in simulated 3D environments and I incorporate structure into a Deep RL agent's memory in order to improve its performance.
