My name is Emile van Krieken. I am a PhD student at the VU University Amsterdam in the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning group and the Computational Intelligence group. My research is on combining knowledge representation and machine learning. I’ve done work on differentiable fuzzy logics, and on Monte Carlo gradient estimation for discrete latent variables. My current work focuses on a framework for gradient estimation called Storchastic.

I’m also interested in Personal Knowledge Management and am excited about Obsidian. I’ve developed Juggl, a plugin for Obsidian that introduces a useful new graph view that helps people get visual insights into their notes.

Another huge hobby of mine is music. Here are some songs I made!
