Hi. My name is Louis. I am a PhD student in machine learning at the University of Sydney. I am advised by Assoc. Prof. Fabio Ramos, jointly with Dr. Edwin Bonilla at UNSW and Adj. Prof. Richard Nock at ANU/Data61. My main research interests lie at the intersection of Bayesian statistics, deep learning and generative models.

Previously, I studied computer science at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), where I minored in mathematics and had an emphasis on algorithm design and analysis, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence and machine learning. I undertook my final-year thesis under Assoc. Prof. 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 leading machine learning researchers and engineers with expertise in Bayesian statistics. Presently, 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.

If you would like to get in touch, you can connect with me on LinkedIn, or follow me on Twitter and GitHub. To reach me directly you can email me at l..@me.com.
