Hi! I'm Mustafa

And I


My name is Mustafa Khan and I am an Engineering Science student at the University of Toronto. My goal is to solve some of the world's most challenging problems through the intersection of machine learning and robotics.

I am currently working on a Hand Gesture Recognition Research Project at UTMIST, reproducing and furthering the work of a Machine Learning Research Paper on 3D Residual Networks and am also using Deep Learning to improve Pedestrian Detection on a Self Driving Car at aUToronto.
