Christian Andersson Naesseth

I am a PhD Student at the Division of Automatic Control, Department of Electrical Engineering, Linköping University since August 2013. August 2016 through June 2017 I am visiting Prof. David M. Blei's research lab at Columbia University in the City of New York as a Fulbright Visiting Student Researcher.

Research interests

My current research interests are focused on computational statistics methods, such as Monte Carlo and variational Bayes, for Bayesian inference and learning in complex, high-dimensional statistical models. Applications for our methods can be found in such diverse fields as information theory, statistical mechanics, machine learning, system identification, spatial statistics and many, many more. My research is supervised by Dr. Fredrik Lindsten and Prof. Thomas Schön (both currently at Uppsala University, Sweden). During October 2015 I visited Dr. Frank Wood's lab at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom, to work on Monte Carlo methods for probabilistic programming.

For supplementary material, source code from my published work and more information about my research interests please see the research pages (menu to the left).

Recent news

Aug 12, 2016: I have been awarded a Fulbright grant and will spend the academic year 2016/2017 as a visiting student researcher in Prof. David M. Blei's research lab at Columbia University in the City of New York.

Jun 17, 2016: Next week I will be attending ICML in New York! We will be presenting our new algorithm Interacting Particle Markov Chain Monte Carlo, especially useful for probabilistic programming. The method is implemented on the development branch of the probabilistic programming system Anglican.
