About me

I am a second third year PhD student in the Machine Learning Group. My supervisor is Carl Edward Rasmussen, and my advisor is Zoubin Ghahramani. I am interested in the mathematics and statistical theory underlying machine learning algorithms, in particular Bayesian nonparametrics and reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. Before starting my PhD I also worked on computational cognitive science in Máté Lengyel's Computational Learning and Memory Group. More recently I have gained interest in quantum information and statistics.
