I am a machine learning researcher based at the School of Informatics within The University of Edinburgh, where I lead a research programme on verifiable and robust meta-learning funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering. I was previously a postdoc in the Machine Intelligence Group led by Prof Timothy Hospedales. Prior to this, I was a PhD student in the Machine Learning Group at The University of Waikato, supervised by Prof Bernhard Pfahringer.
The focus of my research is using theoretical analysis of machine learning problems and techniques to improve our ability to certify/verify the performance/behaviour of models, and also as the basis for improved techniques. I am particularly interested in the foundations of meta-learning, and how further analysis in this area can lead to methods that are able to generalise better in the presence of domain shift and when trained with less data.
Joining my Group
If you are interested joining my research group as an undergraduate already enrolled at University of Edinburgh, or as a postgraduate student, please feel free to get in contact with me via email. You will need to provide me with an indication of a specific topic you are interested in working on.
