My name is Martin Trapp, I’m a Ph.D. candidate in probabilistic machine learning. I have a particular interested in deep tractable probabilistic models, probabilistic programming and Bayesian nonparametrics.
My thesis is supervised by Prof. Franz Pernkopf from the Graz University of Technology and Asst. Prof. Robert Peharz from the Eindhoven University of Technology. Until 2019 I was also affiliated with the Austrian Research Institute for AI and worked under the supervision of Dr. Brigitte Krenn and Prof. em. Robert Trappl. Before I started my Ph.D. I worked as a researcher at the Research Institute for Virtual Reality and Visualisation under the supervision of Dr. Katja Bühler.
