Hello! I am Bhrij (“Bridge”) Patel. I am a second-year CS PhD student at the UMD - College Park. I am advised by Dr. Dinesh Manocha as part of the GAMMA lab and Dr. Tianyi Zhou. Before my PhD, I graduated from Duke University (‘22) with a double major in CS and Math and a minor in Creative Writing. During my undergrad, I was advised by Dr. Cynthia Rudin in her Interpretable ML Lab.
My current research interests:
- Sample-Efficient Reinforcement Learning
- Markovian Data and Mixing Time
- Reinforcement Learning with Human Feedback
- Hierarchical RL and Temporal Abstraction
