I am a Research Fellow in Computer Science at St Catharine's College at the University of Cambridge, and part-time Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, the UK's national institute for data science. I will obtain my PhD from the Cambridge machine learning group, working with Prof Zoubin Ghahramani and funded by the Google Europe Doctoral Fellowship. Prior to that I studied at Oxford Computer Science department for a Master's degree under the supervision of Prof Phil Blunsom. Before my MSc I worked as a software engineer for 3 years at IDesia Biometrics developing code and UI for mobile platforms. I did my undergraduate in mathematics and computer science at the Open University in Israel, where I worked on computational biology, deep learning, and game theory as a fourth year project.
My interests lie in the fields of linguistics, applied maths, and computer science. Most of my work is motivated by problems found in the intersections of these fields. At the moment, I develop Bayesian techniques for deep learning, with applications to reinforcement learning. In the past I worked on Bayesian modelling, approximate inference, natural language processing, and much more. A list of publications is available here.
I am a member of Gonville and Caius College.
