About

I am a Senior Staff Research Scientist in the Google Brain team, working the Zürich office. I have broad in interests in machine learning and artificial intelligence, with particular focusses on scalable methods, vision, language, and generalization.

Prior to joining Google, I received a PhD from the Cambridge Computational and Biological Learning lab, supervised by Zoubin Ghahramani, and Máté Lengyel. My areas of study were Bayesian ML, active learning, and cognitive science.

I am a hiring manager for the Google Brain Zürich Vision Team, if you have a strong background in Maching Learning and/or Computer Vision, feel free to reach out (fullname@google.com).
