Research Summary

My interests are in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in particular. I'm excited about efforts to make intelligent machines, much of which requires dealing with a large amount of data, sometimes incoherent and often complex. In terms of applications and areas, I've worked on:

Bayesian Deep Learning

Reinforcement Learning (including control theory) and Game Playing

Medical Imaging

Acoustic Processing

Natural Language Processing

Active Learning

I primarily use the tools of probabilistic modelling (graphical models) and Bayesian methods in my work.
