Alan Jeffares


I’m a 2nd year Machine Learning PhD student at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Applied Mathematics. I am interested in building a better understanding of empirical phenomena in deep learning (e.g. double descent, loss landscapes) and developing methodological advances from these insights (e.g. deep ensembles). I hold an MSc in Machine Learning from University College London and a BSc in Statistics from University College Dublin. I have previously worked as a Data Scientist at Accenture’s global center for R&D innovation and in the Insight Research Center for Data Analytics. Email at: aj659 [at] cam [dot] ac [dot] uk.
