Carles Balsells Rodas
PhD student (Computing)

Carles is from Reus, Spain. He graduated with a bachelor in Engineering Physics and Computer Science at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, and a master’s degree in Machine Learning at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. He joined the group in Oct 2021 as a PhD candidate in Computing and a teaching scholar. His research interests are mostly based on machine learning, more specifically causal discovery, representation learning, and sequential data modelling. Apart from doing research, he enjoys studying chess, playing padel, and being around with close friends and family.

Wenlong Chen
PhD student (Computing)

Wenlong obtained his MPhil degree in Machine Learning and Machine Intelligence from the University of Cambridge in 2020. Before that, he graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics from McMaster University. He joined the group as a PhD candidate in Computing in Oct. 2021. His research interests include statistical inference, Bayesian deep learning, and uncertainty quantification.

Yingzhen Li

I lead my group's research and do my best to help with other members' great work.

Lapo Restrelli
MRes student (Computing)

Lapo obtained an MEng degree in Biomedical Engineering (Computational stream) at Imperial College London. He joined the group as an MRes student in the AI and ML programme at Computing. His research project focuses on uncovering the role that Batch Normalization layers play in neural networks when attacked by adversarial examples.

Harrison Zhu
PhD student (Statistics, with Seth Flaxman)

Harrison grew up in Beijing, China and did his MSci in Mathematics at Imperial College London and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. He is interested in studying nonparametric Bayesian objects, such as Gaussian processes and Bayesian trees, and approximate Bayesian inference with the hopes of solving environmental and public health problems. He has previously worked with James Hensman at Amazon as an applied scientist intern. Outside of work, Harrison enjoys studying food recipes and playing around with smart home software and hardware. Harrison speaks Mandarin, English and French.
