I'm a mathematics Masters student currently performing research on variational Bayes with coursework in pure mathematics and computer science. I have a strong interest in robotics, reinforcement learning and computer vision.

ACEMS researchers have now provided a mathematical treatment that sheds light on the variance reduction properties of the reparameterization trick. The work was presented at the 22nd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics (AISTATS) in Okinawa, Japan in April 2019, and was subsequently published in the conference proceedings. AISTATS is considered a top conference in Machine Learning.
