Robert Bamler

I am a postdoctoral machine learning researcher at University of California at Irvine (UCI). My research interests include scalable algorithms for approximate Bayesian inference, and applications to natural language processing (NLP).

I joined UCI in December of 2018, and I work in the statistical machine learning group lead by Stephan Mandt. From 2016 to 2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Disney Research. I received my PhD in theoretical statistical and quantum physics in 2016 from University of Cologne, supervised by Achim Rosch and with support from German Telekom Foundation.

  • Before smartphones, how did people access Wikipedia when they were on the go? Some (few, really) used one of the first third party iPod apps.
