Hi. My name is Louis. I am a budding machine learning research scientist and a current PhD candidate at the University of Sydney under Fabio Ramos. I am also advised by Edwin Bonilla and Richard Nock. My main research interests lie at the intersection of Bayesian statistics, deep learning and implicit probabilistic models.
I have a thorough background in computer science and mathematics. Previously, I studied computer science at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), where I had a major emphasis on algorithm design and analysis, theoretical computer science, programming language theory, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and a minor emphasis on mathematics and statistics. I undertook my final-year thesis under Aleksandar Ignjatovic, and graduated with first-class honours in 2015.
Until 2017, I was a software engineer at NICTA (now incorporated under CSIRO as Data61) in the Inference systems group, where I worked with a team of experienced machine learning researchers and engineers with expertise in Bayesian machine learning. I now work at Data61 on a part-time basis when I am not teaching.
