Atılım Güneş Baydin

Associate Member (Faculty), started 2020

Güneş is a Departmental Lecturer in machine learning at the Department of Computer Science and a Senior Researcher in machine learning at the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford. He is also a Research Member of the Common Room at Kellogg College, a research consultant for Microsoft Research Cambridge, and a member of European Lab for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS).

He specializes in probabilistic programming and simulation-based inference, and applications at the intersection of machine learning and physical sciences. His other research interests include automatic differentiation, hyperparameter optimization, and evolutionary algorithms. He’s been working on enabling efficient probabilistic inference in large-scale simulators in particle physics, focusing on distributed training and inference at supercomputing scale. He is also involved in collaborations in heliophysics, cosmology, spacecraft collision avoidance, with collaborators at Lawrence Berkeley Lab, NYU, CERN, NASA, and ESA. He co-organizes the NeurIPS workshop ML4PhysicalSciences among other things.
