Alexander Imani Cowen-Rivers

Research Engineer


I was a postgraduate student studying Machine Learning & Data Science at University College London, advised by Prof. Sebastian Riedel and Dr. Pasquale Minervini in the Machine Reading Group. My main area of interest is learning with structured data and structured representations/computations. These topics include natural language processing, multi-agent reinforcement learning and logic.

I completed my BSc at the University of Bath, studying Mathematical Sciences. My first two years I studied mathematics, and in my final year of studies, I changed course to studying mathematics with computer science. After my penultimate year of study, I completed a 12 month placement at Burberry PLC , as a Data Analyst.
