Hi. My name is Louis. I am a budding machine learning researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Sydney working with Edwin Bonilla and Fabio Ramos. My main research interests lie at the intersection of Bayesian statistics, deep learning and implicit probabilistic models. This summer I am visiting Cédric Archambeau at Amazon Berlin for a research internship.
Until 2017, I was a software engineer at NICTA (now incorporated under CSIRO as Data61) in the inference systems group, working on scalable Bayesian machine learning. I now work at Data61 on a part-time basis when I am not teaching.
Previously, I studied computer science at the University of New South Wales, 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.
