Adjointe scientifique HES (postdoc)|
I am a member of the data mining and machine learning team of Mr. Kalousis in the Department of Business Informatics of the University of Applied Sciences-Western Switzerland, Geneva, as adjointe scientifique (postdoc). I graduated from a Master's program in statistics at the University of Economics in Prague in 2001. After gaining over 12 years of work experience as an applied statistician tackling real-life problems (including in the statistical departments of the Czech and the European Central Banks, and EUROCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation), I have returned to academia and in 2018 defended a PhD in machine learning at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Geneva.
During my PhD I focused primarily on structured sparsity and kernel methods. I'm now exploring the areas of life-long learning, Bayesian inference, and am interested in delving deeper into reinforcement learning.
I teach data mining and machine learning courses at bachelor and masters level (course material).
