Hi. My name is Louis. I am a budding machine learning research scientist and a current PhD candidate at the University of Sydney under Fabio Ramos. I also work with Edwin Bonilla at UNSW and Richard Nock at ANU/Data61. My main research interests lie at the intersection of Bayesian statistics, deep learning and implicit generative models.

I have a thorough background in computer science and mathematics. Previously, I studied computer science at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), where I had a major emphasis on algorithm design and analysis, theoretical computer science, programming language theory, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and a minor emphasis on mathematics and statistics. I undertook my final-year thesis under Aleksandar Ignjatovic, and graduated with first-class honours in 2015.

Until 2017, I was a software engineer at NICTA (now incorporated under the CSIRO as Data61) in the Inference Systems team, where I worked among a group of experienced machine learning researchers and engineers with a focus on Bayesian machine learning. Presently, when I am not engaged in teaching-related activities, I work at Data61 on a part-time basis.

In my spare time, if I am not working on one of my many incomplete side projects, you'll either find me shooting hoops at the gym, or on the mats training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, in all likelihood being strangled, probably by a smaller opponent.

Check out my projects for the things I've built and my dev stack for what I love to build things with.
