PhD candidate

University of Amsterdam

I am a third-year PhD student in Deep Learning for Network Analysis at the University of Amsterdam, supervised by Prof. Max Welling. My main area of interest is large-scale inference for structured data and semi-supervised learning. I am also interested in reasoning and multi-agent reinforcement learning.

My formal background is in Physics (M.Sc. hons. 2016, B.Sc. 2014 at FAU). During my studies, I have had exposure to a number of fields and—after a short interlude in Neuroscience-related research at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research—eventually developed a deep interest in Machine Learning.

- Our paper Modeling Relational Data with Graph Convolutional Networks is accepted as a conference paper at ESWC 2018.
- I will be joining Google DeepMind for a summer internship in 2018.
- Our work on learning latent interaction graphs: Neural Relational Inference for Interacting Systems is now on the arXiv.
- In the summer of 2017, I interned at Apple in Carlos Guestrin's Machine Learning team. I worked on self-attention models for sequence tagging and classification.
