Computational and Biological Learning Lab

Runa Eschenhagen


I am a PhD student in the Machine Learning Group within the Computational and Biological Learning Lab at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Richard Turner and advised by Carl Edward Rasmussen. I am broadly interested in better understanding and improving deep learning. Specifically, I work on approximate Bayesian inference and training algorithms for deep learning.

Previously, I obtained an MSc in Machine Learning from the University of Tübingen and worked as a research assistant in the Methods of Machine Learning group led by Philipp Hennig. I received a BSc in Cognitive Science from the University of Osnabrück and spent my final year as an intern in the Approximate Bayesian Inference Team led by Emtiyaz Khan at RIKEN AIP in Tokyo.
