About Me

I am studying for a PhD in Machine Learning at the University of Cambridge. My supervisor is Zoubin Ghahramani and my advisor is Carl Edward Rasmussen.

I joined the machine learning group at Cambridge in 2011 after working as a management consultant at the Boston Consulting Group. Before that, I received a B.A. in mathematics and M.Phil in Statistics from the University of Cambridge.

My interests lie in the application of Bayesian and nonparametric statistics to machine learning. In particular, I am working towards building an automatic statistician.
