Ines Marusic


I am a final-year PhD student in Computer Science. My research is in computational foundations of machine learning. I have been working with structured data, such as words and trees, focusing on algebraic representations in terms of state machines and matrices. I am interested in questions of succinctness, algorithmic tractability, computational and informational complexity. More specifically, I have been working on developing new algorithms and rigorous guarantees concerning learning frameworks such as active learning and dimensionality reduction. My PhD thesis focuses on weighted-automaton learning and minimization, matrix factorization, and the relationships between these two areas.

Outside of my research, I am a founder of the Oxford Women in Computer Science Society and was the society's first president. I am also a founder and co-organiser of the annual Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference.

I serve on the department's Equality and Diversity Committee, where I helped write the department’s successful application for the Athena SWAN Bronze award.
