I am a postdoc at Vector Institute and University of Toronto with Rich Zemel, also collaborating with David Duvenaud and Roger Grosse. Previously, I was a postdoc in the lab of Matthias Bethge in Tübingen and a Ph.D. student at the University of Amsterdam under supervision of Arnold Smeulders. My research mainly focuses on gaining better understanding of open challenges in generative modeling, representation learning and robust decision-making. My background is in physics with a specialization in neuroscience.
I have been working on representation learning with generative models, on invertible neural networks and normalizing flows, on generalization under distribution shift as well as on the connection between invariance and adversarial examples.
