Welcome!

Hi there! My name is Yingzhen and I hope you enjoy this website ūüôā

I am a 4th-year PhD candidate in the machine learning group at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge. My supervisor is Dr. Richard E. Turner and my advisor is Prof. Zoubin Ghahramani. I've also been working closely with Dr. José Miguel Hernández-Lobato on some of my projects. In summer 2017 I interned with Dr. Stephan Mandt at Disney Research.

The goal of my PhD is to develop approximate inference algorithms that are both accurate and efficient (in time and space complexities). In general I have broad interests in topics including deep learning, transfer learning, information theory, and optimization.

I have finished a draft PhD thesis on approximate inference, and as a side product here's an incomplete list of topics in approximate inference.

I am a member of Darwin College. I also greatly acknowledge the FFTF fellowship from Schlumberger Foundation for funding my study.
