I am an Associate Professor in the  department of Computer Science and Technology at the University of Cambridge, where I lead the Machine Learning Systems lab. Our mission is to invent the next-generation of breakthrough ML-centric systems.

At Samsung AI in Cambridge, I am also the Laboratory Director. This 50-person lab has an agenda of broad ML advancement, and in addition to leading the lab — I personally direct teams focused on distributed and on-device forms of learning.
