I’m currently a post-doc researcher at the University of Sheffield, in Neil Lawrence’s lab. We’re developing new tools to allow data to be anonymised, through the framework of differential privacy. As part of an innovate UK collaboration we’re building the scikic inference tool, which will provide both a conversation interface and a backend API for inferring demographic and lifestyle features about individuals. It is hoped it will be a useful tool to demonstrate the power of machine learning. In the future we hope to develop a user-centric data model for the analysis and storage of user data, with the motivation that personalised medicine and associated research requires access to user data. I spent most of 2014 lecturing at Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. There I became involved in the field of Development Informatics, and have several on-going research topics; covering air pollution, nutrition-data, automated microscopy, traffic collision data and malaria distribution prediction. A variety of machine learning methods have been applied (for example Gaussian Process models for the model of malaria distribution). More details about some of these projects can be found at the Artificial Intelligence in the Developing World (AI-DEV) group’s website.

I am a PhD student at MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society interested in algorithmic fairness and modern challenges in data analysis such as robustness and privacy. I recently received my undergraduate degree in Computer and Communications Engineering at the American University of Beirut. In the summer of 2018 I was a visiting student/intern at TTIC working with Mesrob Ohannessian and Nathan Srebro on the long term effects of fair decision making.

Alessandro Barp (Imperial College London)
Andrew Ilyas (MIT)
Kaiwen Wu (University of Waterloo)
Jens Behrmann (University of Bremen)
Omar Rivasplata (DeepMind & UCL)

My top-level areas of interest are statistical learning theory, machine learning, probability and statistics. These days I am very interested in deep learning and reinforcement learning. I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Department of Statistical Science, University College London. Before my current post I was for a few months at the Department of Mathematics at UCL. Previously I was for a few years at the Department of Computer Science at UCL, where I did research studies in statistical machine learning, sponsored by DeepMind. In parallel with these studies I was a research scientist intern at DeepMind for three years. Back in the day I studied undergraduate maths (BSc 2000, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú) and graduate maths (MSc 2005, PhD 2012, University of Alberta). I've lived in Peru, in Canada, and now I'm based in the UK.

Edoardo Manino is a research fellow at the University of Southampton. Currently, he is finishing his PhD in machine learning and crowdsourcing under the supervision of Prof. Nicholas R. Jennings and Dr. Long Tran-Thanh. His research interests range from Bayesian learning to algorithmic game theory and, more recently, influence maximisation on social networks.

I am a Ph.D. student in the knowledge representation group at the University of Toronto. I am also a member of the Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association and the Vector Institute. My supervisor is Sheila McIlraith. I did my undergrad in Computer Engineering and MSc in Computer Science at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (PUC). My master's degree was co-supervised by Alvaro Soto and Jorge Baier. While I was at PUC, I taught the undergraduate course "Introduction to Computer Programming Languages."
