Research Interests

  • Disentangled Latent Space Representations
  • Generative Modeling
  • Deep Representation Learning

Research Projects

  • Evaluating Sparsity for Improving Disentanglement in Wasserstein Autoencoders: Several sparsity-inducing penalties are implemented within the Wasserstein Autoencoders framework to quantify their effect on learning disentangled representations.
  • Disentangling via Transformation-Robust Representations: Invariance against groups of transformations on particular latent space dimensions is imposed, allowing to incorporate prior knowledge on a weakly-supervised level.
