Oleh /Oleg/ Rybkin

Hi! I am Oleh, a postdoc at the UC Berkeley BAIR lab working with Pieter Abbeel and Sergey Levine.

I am interested in intelligent agents that can learn general skills from large quantities of diverse data. I've also worked on unsupervised intelligent agents and agents with internal world models.

I received my Ph.D. from University of Pennsylvania, where I worked with Kostas Daniilidis and Sergey Levine. Previously, I received my bachelor's degree from Czech Technical University in Prague. I've also spent time at INRIA, TiTech, Google, and DeepMind.

Happy to chat about research or potential collaborations - shoot me an email!
