About me

Hi there 👋 My name is Adrián, and I am a PhD student at the Probabilistic Machine Learning group under the supervision of Isabel Valera at Saarland University. I am also an alumnus of the Empirical Inference department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. Before pursuing my PhD, I completed a Master in Computer Science and a double Bachelor Degree in Computer Science Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Murcia.

I am mostly interested in principled research that aims to improve machine learning methods, making them easier to use and more robust. Specifically, my current research focuses on improving models that optimize different tasks simultaneously. This includes apparently unrelated areas such as multitask learning (MTL) and deep probabilistic generative models (e.g. VAEs) under heterogeneous environments. 

However, I am a curiosity-driven, and I am always happy to discuss interesting ideas even if they lie outside my comfort zone. Feel free to reach me out via Twitter or email.
