I am part of Google Research Europe, where I am developing deep learning algorithms for machine hearing, audio understanding, image understanding and generative models of animation. I hold numerous patents in these areas.

I earned Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics in 1998 from the University of Ljubljana, and Master's degree in Computer Science in 2006 from Trinity College Dublin. I grew up in Slovenia and during the course of my career lived and worked in Slovenia, Ireland, California, and Switzerland.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter, cycling, amateur photography, listening to a wide variety of music, art films, and interesting conversations over coffee and beer.
