I am a research scientist at DeepMind, working on AI safety. Prior to that I worked in the Deep Learning Perception group at the Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence on Bayesian deep learning and neural network compression. I did my PhD at the Sensorimotor Learning and Decision-Making research group lead by Daniel A. Braun at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. My PhD research has been focused on understanding how decision-makers can leverage the structure of their environment in order to efficiently cope with uncertainty. I investigated links between bounded rationality (lately termed computational rationality) and information theory, in particular rate distortion theory.
