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 am also advised by Edwin Bonilla and Richard Nock. My main research interests lie at the intersection of Bayesian statistics, deep learning and implicit probabilistic 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 CSIRO as Data61) in the Inference systems group, where I worked with a team of experienced machine learning researchers and engineers with expertise in Bayesian machine learning. I now work at Data61 on a part-time basis when I am not teaching.

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 in the beautiful art of Brazilian jiu jitsu.
