I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Machine Learning at the University of Birmingham. I am working on the FORGING EPSRC research project led by Professor Ata Kabán. The goal of the project is both to explore geometric structures which enable efficient learning from small data samples in high dimensional learning scenarios. We are particularly focused on the role played by Random Projections of the data onto a low dimensional subspace. Within the scope of this project I am focusing on a variety of problems including learning with label noise, mixture proportion estimation, learning in unbounded domains and matrix factorisation.

I did a PhD in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester under the supervision of Professor Gavin Brown. My research focus was on learning scenarios with asymmetric costs in high dimensions with connections to Neyman Pearson classification and multi armed bandits. The thesis is available to download here .
Areas of interest: Minimax rates, Label noise, Mixture proportion estimation, Weakly supervised learning, Random projections, Compressive learning, Matrix factorisation, Dimensionality reduction, Multi armed bandits.
