About Me

I am a Research Scientist and Doctoral student in the Dialogue Systems and Machine Learning group at HHU in Düsseldorf. I was born in South Africa and received a Masters degree in Mathematical Statistics with distinction at the University of Pretoria in 2018. My main research interest lie in distributional deep learning and the understanding of deep learning models. I am currently working on Dialogue Belief Tracking and Uncertainty in Deep Learning for the next generation of Dialogue Systems.
