Ana-Maria Cretu

My name is Ana-Maria and I’m a PhD student in the CPG. My research interests include developing machine learning techniques for re-identification in large-scale behavioral datasets and developing methods for anonymization of text data.

Prior to starting my PhD, I obtained an MSc in Computer Science from EPFL, Switzerland, a Master’s degree in Data Science and a Bachelor in Engineering from Ecole Polytechnique (France), the last with a focus on Pure and Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. I did my Master Thesis in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford under Prof. Thomas Lukasiewicz’s supervision. My research was on 1) solving the Winograd Schema Challenge and 2) on developing sentence representation models with the goal of improving interpretability and performance on a set of benchmark natural language processing tasks.
