About Me

IMG_9399_edited.jpg

Masaki Adachi (足立 真輝)🇯🇵🇬🇧

I am a final-year DPhil student in Engineering Science (Information Engineering) in the Bayesian Exploration LabMachine Learning Reading Group at the University of Oxford under primary supervision of Prof Michael Osborne. My secondary advisor is Prof David Howey from Battery Intelligence Lab. I am also a Clarendon Scholar. Simultaneously, I am an assistant manager and data scientist at Toyota Motor Corporation. My research interest is in the interdisciplinary field between machine learning and energy science, applying Bayesian machine learning to the proliferation of electric vehicles and renewable energy.

Research Interests

  • ​Gaussian Process, Bayesian Quadrature, Bayesian Optimization, Probabilistic Numerics

  • Simulation-based inference, Battery modeling (physics-based, data-driven)
