Mr Georgios Pilikos

Research student


I am a PhD student at the Laboratory for Scientific Computing (LSC) under the supervision of Dr Anita Faul, funded by the EPSRC and BP. My current research interests include Bayesian Inference, Compressive Sensing and Feature Learning applied to Geophysics. Before joining the LSC, I received an MEng in Information Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. There, I worked on human detection and tracking in video using Support Vector Machines. I am interested in Machine Learning in general and I am lecturing a course for the MPhil in Scientific Computing on Unsupervised Learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, feature learning and sampling). In addition, I am interested in large-scale algorithmic implementation using CUDA for GPGPUs.
