I am a student in the Cambridge-Tübingen programme for Machine Learning and am jointly supervised by Prof. Carl Rasmussen and Bernhard Schölkopf.
For the first year of my PhD, I was based at the University of Cambridge where I did research in the Machine Learning Group at the Department of Engineering. There, I worked with Carl Ramussen on sparse approximations in Gaussian Processes.
Nowadays, I am mostly interested in (Deep) Probabilistic Models and Variational Methods. However, I am also interested in Information Geometry as well as in Computational Photography.

Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
