About me:I am currently working at Google applying Machine Learning techniques to problems within the Google Robotics group. Perviously, I was a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, as a member of the i•BUG group, under Prof. Maja Pantic's and Dr. Stefanos Zafeiriou's supervision. I also collaborated with Prof. Zoubin Ghahramani (Cambridge), Dr. Louis-Philippe Morency (USC), and Dr. Marc Mehu (UGeneva).
My research interests include Bayesian nonparametrics, Deep Learning, Nonnegative Matrix Factorization, Graphical Models, Automatic Human Behavior Analysis, Evolutionary Computation.
While at Imperial, my research was supported in part by a Google Ph.D. Fellowship.
