Portrait of Alexander Gaunt

Alexander Gaunt



I am a researcher in the Machine Intelligence and Perception group at Microsoft Research Cambridge.

My research focuses on building machine learning systems that can discover and reason about program-like structure in data. This has application in automatic program synthesis, where we want to write programs given only a handful of example inputs and corresponding outputs , and also in discovery of interpretable algorithmic processes from experimental observations of complex systems.

I obtained my PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Prof. Zoran Hadzibabic where I performed experimental studies of non-equilibrium dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates.
