Ahmed Hussain Qureshi

I received my B. Eng. degree in Electrical Engineering from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan in 2014. Currently, I am a master student at Osaka University, Japan working with Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro. My research interests include probabilistic machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, and planning algorithms.
