I am a fourth year PhD student in the Machine Learning program at Northeastern University, advised by Professor Jan-Willem van de Meent. I got my BSc in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science at the University of Edinburgh. I did my MSc in Data Science at the same University.

I am interested in deep generative models and how we can guide them towards learning useful representations for downstream tasks. I am also interested in the intersection of information theory and representation learning. I am also a fan of probabilistic programming which I think provides cool opportunities for abstracting probabilistic models.
