Machine learning interests me because of its mix of algorithms, analysis and statistics. Concretely, I’m pursuing two goals; firstly, I want to understand how we can learn latent variable models in a consistent and efficient manner. Secondly, I am interested in information extraction in the context of question answering. In the past, I’ve also worked on probabilistic programming, statistical relational learning and hierarchical reinforcement learning.
