Hi there 👋! I’m Andrei, I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems and ELLIS, under the co-supervision of Mathias Niepert (University of Stuttgart) and Karsten Borgwardt (ETH Zürich & MPI-B). I am also a Machine Learning Researcher at Bitdefender’s Theoretical Research Laboratory. I got a B.Sc. in Mathematics and a M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Bucharest. In the past I have also worked as a Software Engineer for NXP Semiconductors.
I’ve served as a reviewer for EMNLP 2022, ICML 2022/2023, NeurIPS 2022/2023. I got a Best Reviewer award for NeurIPS 2022 and 2023.
My Ph.D. research focuses on the design and development of Geometric Deep Learning methods where the robustness and trustworthiness of such models are an integral part of the research. My Master’s thesis involved deep anomaly detection in text (full thesis).
