Born in Malta, where I commenced my studies in computer science and AI. Continued this journey at the University of Glasgow, before heading to the sunnier French Riviera for a PhD in machine learning at EURECOM. I spent Summer 2017 in Oxford as a visiting student, and Summer 2018 undertaking an internship with the ML team in Amazon, Cambridge. Upon completing my PhD, I joined the Investments AI team at AIG as a machine learning scientist.

Research

The resilient appeal of Bayesian inference models in the face of competitive deep learning techniques can be attributed to their well-founded quantificaiton of uncertainty. Bridging the gap between Gaussian processes and deep learning techniques remains a pertinent research goal. Under the impeccable guidance of Dr. Maurizio Filippone at EURECOM, my primary research interests during the PhD involved developing scalable approximations to Gaussian process inference without compromising on performance and precision.

Our work has resulted in several publications appearing in top-tier machine learning conferences.

A Musical Epilogue

In tribute to the time wasted devoted to curating playlists, here is a selection of eleven tracks I am currently listening to on repeat.
