About Me

I have recently defended my PhD in Statistical Machine Learning where Ihave been a student in the group of Computational Statistics and Machine Learning group, at the Department of Statistics of the University of Oxford. My advisors are Professors Francois Caron and Yee Whye Teh.
I was a student in the Center for Doctoral Training in modern statistical science.

For Jan 2019 - June 2019 I was an Enrichment Student at the Alan Turing Institute and from July 2019 - May 2020 I have been a Research Visitor at the The Alan Turing Institute in London where I worked under the supervision of Professon Christopher Holmes on Discrete Representational Learning.

I am one of the founding members of Women in Data Science and Statistics, a newly formed group to promote women in the broad area of Data Science both in academia and industry. We are supported by the Royal Statistical Society.

From Sept 2018- Dec 2018 I have been on an internship at Google Zurich where I worked on defining suitable Autoencoder architectures for Google Maps data .

In spring 2018 I was a visiting research student at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.

Research Interests

My research intersts lie in statistical machine learning: Bayesian Nonparametrics, Bayesian Deep Learning, Stochastic Processes, Generative and Representational Learning.

Media Coverage

Next Generation AI Experts.

February 2019

I was featured as one of the art of the next generation of AI experts workinginto turning machine learning into practical solutions to worldwide problems. Watch my video featured by the Alan Turing Institute and the UK Government Department of Media. where I explain that one of the best things about studying AI is the multidisciplinary natureof the community.
