About me

Ciao! My name is Pierluca D’Oro. I am a PhD student at MILA, supervised by Prof. Bacon and Prof. Bellemare.

My research area is reinforcement learning. I am particularly interested in studying how the learning process of an agent can exploit knowledge about the process itself.

I did my MSc at Politecnico di Milano, working on model-based reinforcement learning under the supervision of Prof. Marcello Restelli. Previously, I worked on generative models with Prof. Concetto Spampinato at the University of Catania, in my hometown in Sicily. I have also spent some time as an intern at NNAISENSE in Lugano, mainly working with Wojciech Jaśkowski on model-based reinforcement learning.
