Call for Students

I am looking for excellent research students to join my group. The group's research focuses on the theoretical and algorithmic foundations of deep learning. It adopts a highly mathematical approach, but also includes extensive empirical evaluations to support theory. For further details on our research please consult the materials on this website (papers, talks, blog posts etc.).

Students will typically join the group at MSc level, with the option of pursuing a subsequent PhD if there is mutual interest. Entry at PhD level will only be considered in exceptional cases. If you are interested in applying, please verify that you meet the criteria below, and if so, send your CV and grade transcripts via e-mail.
