About me

Hi and welcome to my website!

My name is Alex, and I am a Research Associate at Huawei 2012 Laboratories in London, focussing on Bayesian model-based RL, active inference, and computational neuroscience.

I hold a Master’s degree in Artificial Intelligence from Imperial College London, where I was supervised by Dr. Zafeirios Fountas and Dr. Matthew Crosby. Prior to Imperial College, I completed a Bachelor’s degree at University College London, where I was supervised by Prof. Mark Miodownik.

Here, I post information about my research, thoughts, and opinions (not quite there yet).
