My interests include but not limited to:

  • Probabilistic Machine Learning
  • Approximate Inference
  • Point Processes
  • Optimization in Machine Learning
  • Generative Modeling
  • Fairness and Interpretability in Machine Learning
  • Statistical Learning Theory
  • Reinforcement Learning

So I'm totally interested in applied domains which foundational work and analysis is possible and important beside practice.

Beside my interests in science, I also enjoy playing badminton. I played it since when I was 9. I also enjoy playing guitar. Both acoustic and electric. I usually prefer to play classic rock songs. I've been always interested in philosophical foundations of science and their interpretations on my own research field I am also interested in watching movies and series. I love sci-fi and psychological thriller movies.
