Ilya Tolstikhin


Between 2014 and 2018 I was a postdoc (and later a team lead) at the Empirical Inference Department of Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen, Germany. I received a diploma (MSc equivalent) in 2010 from Lomonosov Moscow State University and PhD in 2014 from Dorodnicyn Computing Center of Russian Academy of Sciences.
Currently I am actively interested in understanding neural network training and generalization. Previously I worked on statistical learning theory and more generally on theory of machine learning.
