Thiviyan Thanapalasingam

I'm a first-year PhD candidate in Computer Science at the University of Amsterdam. My PhD advisor is Paul Groth and my co-promoter is Peter Bloem.

I am interested in machine learning for graph-based data and knowledge representation.

In my spare time, I enjoy 🏃‍♂️🚴‍♂️ 🧗‍♂️ and reading 📚.
