Department of Computer Science and Technology

I am a PhD student under Cambridge-Tuebingen PhD Felloship. I will be supervised by Bernhard Schölkopf at the Max Planck Insitute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen and Ferenc Huszar at University of Cambridge, where I will spend the first year of my PhD.

My research interest lies in the intersection of causal inference and machine learning. Particularly, during the first year of my PhD, I aim to work on the topic of Causal Representation Learning. Deep neural network methods have proved to be very efficient at learning statistical association within data. However, it is becoming clear that they fail to learn causally valid representations, which is essential for robust inference and reasoning. Therefore I am interested in developing new techniques for training neural networks such that they learn about the invariant causal structure behind the data.

Biography

A summary of my past: I completed Msc in Machine Learning at UCL, advised by Prof. Ricardo Silva and studied Mathematics (Bsc + MMath) at University of Cambridge. I also worked as a Quantitative Strategist at Goldman Sachs International.
