Approximate Inference, Deep Generative Models

I am a PhD student supervised by Ingmar Posner and Yee Whye Teh. I am interested in machine reasoning, and mostly in efficient inference in deep generative models, especially for timeseries. I am also excited by attention mechanisms and external memory for neural networks. I received an MSc in Computational Science & Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, where I worked on VAEs with Patrick van der Smagt.

In my free time I train gymnastics and read lots of books.
