Jorn W.T. Peters

PhD Student in Deep Learning at University of Amsterdam ยท

I am a second-year PhD student in Deep Learning focussing on model compression and distillation, supervised by Max Welling. My main interests lay in probabilistic and information-theoretic methods for Deep Learning.

I received a Bachelors degree in Artificial Intelligence (hons. & cum laude) and a Masters degree in Artificial Intelligence (cum laude) from the University of Amsterdam. My Msc thesis [pdf] was on Deep Learning methods for Deconvolution in Radio Astronomy (supervised by Patrick Putzky).
