About Me

I am a machine learning researcher at Qualcomm AI Research, Amsterdam. Previously I was a postdoc in Max Welling's Philips group with the Amsterdam Machine Learning Lab (AMLAB) at the University of Amsterdam. I primarily work in the field of equivariance: extending convolution beyond translation to other kinds of transformation.

Other research interests include: uncertainty quantification, unsupervised representation learning, variational inference, normalizing flows, optimization, and medical imaging.

I did my PhD at UCL in the Machine Vision Group with Gabriel J. Brostow and Dr. Clare Wilson FRCOphth. Before that I studied engineering at The University of Cambridge, and am a scholar of Sidney Sussex College.

For the last two years I lectured a course in Bayesian Statistics for Machine Learning, and have been the lab manager for the Philips lab at the UvA. I am proud contributor to the UvA Inclusive AI Initiative, which seeks to promote diversity and inclusion in the academic AI world. Find me on Google Scholar, Twitter, and GitHub.

Daniel Worrall grew up in Cambridge, going to school there and later reading Engineering at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University. After Cambridge he immediately began a PhD under the supervision of Gabriel J. Brostow who is Professor in Computer Vision and Computer Graphics at UCL. He is now living and working in Amsterdam as a postdoc in the newly formed Philips Group under Prof Max Welling. He works on nascent machine learning ideas and applies them to medical imaging challenges.
