me 

I am PhD Student in the UCL Department of Computer Science, and the The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, part of the Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning. My PhD is founded by Centre for Doctoral Training in Financial Computing & Analytics and partially The Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit.

My research supervisor is Arthur Gretton. My research interests include machine learning and statistics, in particular

  • kernel methods,

  • time series analysis,

  • statistical testing.

News

  • June 2015: article on analytic mean embeddings, used to construct almost surely consistent and linear-time two-sample test. Available here.

  • November 2014: I give a presentation on the article"A Wild Bootstrap for Degenerate Kernel Tests." during the NIPS 2014 conference. The details are available here.

  • September 2014: the video from my presentation of the "A Kernel Independence Test for Random Processes." is available here.
