Deep RL for IR applications

Used deep reinforcement learning to recommend travel destinations to users based on forum posts and user reviews. Used deep reinforcement learning to improve document retrieval from a corpus via document expansion. This project was a part of my undergraduate thesis at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics under Dr. Andrew Yates and Dr. Paramita Mirza.

My research interests lie primarily in the area of reinforcement learning (RL) and control to build agents that can acquire complex behaviours in the real world via interaction.
