Samuel Sokota


I am a PhD student in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I did my master’s at the University of Alberta, where I worked with Marc Lanctot on reinforcement learning in games and with Martha White on model-based reinforcement learning. Before that, I did my undergraduate at Swarthmore College, where I played lacrosse, studied mathematics and physics, and worked with Bryce Wiedenbeck on empirical game theory.

The best way to reach me is at ssokota(at)andrew(dot)cmu(dot)edu.
