Research

I am a PhD student at the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation, University of Edinburgh, UK, under the supervision of Prof. Chris Williams. My research focusses on various aspects of machine learning, in particular in the application of probabilistic models and unsupervised learning to problems in computer vision and image modeling. I am further interested in understanding information processing in the brain. This includes questions related to neural coding (especially in vision) and motion processing as well as the application of machine learning techniques to neural data analysis.
