Biography

Hi, I am a final year DPhil student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford, supervised by Prof. Dino Sejdinovic, Prof. Mihai Cucuringu and Prof. Xiaowen Dong.

My research interests lie in the intersection of kernel methods and Gaussian Processes with various Machine Learning applications such as Preference Learning, Explainable AI , and Causal Inference. I also enjoy deploying my research to the industry as a freelance ML consultant, as the variety of projects and clients I work with in turn link back into my research, inspiring me with new ideas.
