Katja Hofmann

Senior Principal Researcher


I am a Senior Principal Researcher within the Machine Intelligence theme at Microsoft Research Cambridge. I lead a team that focuses on Deep Reinforcement Learning for Games, with our mission to advance the state of the art in reinforcement learning, driven by current and future applications in video games.

My long-term goal is to develop AI systems that learn to collaborate with people, to empower their users and help solve complex real-world problems.

As part of the Microsoft Research PhD Scholarship program, I currently co-supervise the following PhD students:
