I am Staff Research Scientist in Machine Learning at DeepMind.
I received a Diploma di Laurea in Mathematics from
University of Bologna
and a PhD in Machine Learning from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (IDIAP Research Institute).
Before joining DeepMind I worked in
the Empirical Inference Department
at the Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (Prof. Dr. Bernhard Schölkopf),
in the Machine Intelligence and Perception Group at
Microsoft Research Cambridge
(Prof. Christopher Bishop)
and the Statistical Laboratory, University of Cambridge (Prof. Philip Dawid).
My research interests are based around Bayesian & causal reasoning, graphical models, variational inference,
time-series models, deep learning, and ML fairness and bias.
I am looking for a research scientit with background in Bayesian reasoning. Please contact me if interested.
