I am interested in Machine Learning in general and Bayesian probabilistic modelling in particular. I am fascinated by how we can create machines that can perform better than we do at tasks we don't even know how to do. My interests are in how to represent knowledge, manipulate it, and act on it — and how our endeavour to let machines do this tells us something about ourselves.
The main focus of my work is on approximative inference in the case of complex models, large datasets, deep architectures, computer vision, etc.
A short CV can be found here. In brief, I started off as an Engineer in Electronics, worked for a few year as an embedded software developer, did another masters in computer science at the University of Manchester where I stayed on for a Ph.D. under the supervision of Magnus Rattray and Tim Cootes. I have been a postdoc researcher in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) group at the University of Amsterdam and am now assistant professor at the HMI group of the University of Twente
