POST DOC RESEARCHER
.

I am a postdoc at the Online Services and Advertising group at Microsoft Research Cambridge. I work on online evaluation and online learning to rank for information retrieval. This means that I try to understand how we can apply machine learning to directly adapt to users, by trying out new solutions and interpreting users' feedback as a noisy reinforcement signal.

Before joining Microsoft Research, I completed my PhD in the ILPS group at the University of Amsterdam, under the supervision of Maarten de Rijke and Shimon Whiteson. My thesis on Fast and Reliable Online Learning to Rank in Information Retrieval can be downloaded from my personal homepage.
