Tarun Krishna


I am a 4th year PhD student at Insight SFI Centre of Data Analytics at Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland. I am supervised by Dr. Kevin McGuinness and Prof. Noel O’Connor. My research interests lies in computer vision and machine learning specifically self-supervised learning and conditional computation.

Prior to starting PhD, I finished Masters in Artifical Intelligence from University of Amsterdam (UvA), Netherlands. I was supervised by Mert Kilickaya during my master thesis at QUvA Lab.

NOTE : Commencing in early 2024, I will be actively exploring job opportunities, with a keen interest in industrial Postdoc positions or roles as an applied researcher/scientist in the industry.
