I am working in the Causal Inference group as a PhD student, where I am founded via a Google European Doctoral Fellowship.
My research focuses mainly on kernel methods, such as kernel mean embeddings. They lead to metrics over distributions, which are now widely used to design distribution comparison tests, such as the Maximum Mean Discrepancy and the HSIC test. Studying these metrics, I recently turned towards generative adversarial nets (GANs), which can be seen as an effective way to generate a fake distribution that minimises its distance to another reference distribution.

Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
