My name is Aabir Abubaker Kar.
I have a BE in Engineering and an MSc in Physics from BITS Pilani, Goa Campus in India. I also have a Minor Certificate in Philosophy, Economics and Politics.
I’m currently a researcher at the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences, Bangalore.
I’ve previously been a researcher at the New England Complex Systems Institute.
I like physics, poetry, programming and politics.
Actually, I like lots of other things, but these four are sort of alliterative.
My research interests are in reinforcement learning, multi-scale information, complex systems, and the problems of rational decision-making. I’m generally fascinated by theories of learning, both machine and human.
I’m also a freelance tutor and writer with a passion for clear communication. I firmly believe that there are no boring topics, only poor teaching and writing.
I’m also an alleged Mechanical Engineer.
