I am a research associate working with Arthur Gretton
at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit.
My main research interests are information theory (consistent estimators, distribution regression; ITE toolbox
), kernel methods and dictionary learning problems (structured sparse tasks, independent subspace analysis
and its extensions). I am also working on applications including remote sensing, blind signal separation, collaborative filtering,
natural language processing and facial expression recognition.
