Niki Kilbertus graduated with a Master’s in Physics and in Mathematics from the University of Regensburg. He worked on numerical simulations of early universe cosmology with Tom Abel and William East at Stanford, high energy particle physics with Paul Chesler and Wilke van der Schee at Harvard, and causal fermion systems.
He joined the Cambridge-Tübingen programme in October 2016 and moved to Cambridge as a member of Pembroke College in October 2017. Niki is passionate about beneficial AI and AI safety. His current research interests lie in interpretability and fairness, learning disentangled representations and machine learning applications in physics such as gravitational wave detection from LIGO data.
Niki is funded by the Cambridge-Tübingen Fellowship.
