I am a third year PhD student at the Czech Institute for Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC, CTU in Prague), part of the Impact Project, and the Willow team, INRIA/ENS. I am conducting my PhD under the supervision of Tomas Mikolov (CIIRC, CTU in Prague) and Josef Sivic (CIIRC, Inria and ENS Paris). Previously, I got a Master’s degree in Mathematics, Vision, and Machine learning from École Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay. Before that, I got a Master’s degree in Engineering with a major in Computer Science at Mines ParisTech.
My research focuses on the development of unsupervised machine learning algorithms capable of innovation and adaptation. I study complex systems like cellular automata and open-ended evolution.
I am generally interested in the emergence and growth of complexity in dynamical systems and how this could lead to open-ended evolving systems. During the first two years of my PhD, I have studied cellular automata and their continuous extensions as they are general and simple yet capable of surprisingly complex emergent behaviors.
