I’m a PhD student at the VU University Amsterdam. My research focuses on combining symbolic reasoning and machine learning, or “Neuro-Symbolic AI”. I’ve done work on differentiable fuzzy logics, and on optimization with discrete latent variables. I developed the Storchastic PyTorch library, which implements many gradient estimation methods.

I expect to finish my PhD July 2023 and am looking for opportunities. Contact me at info@emilevankrieken.com if interested.

I’m also interested in Personal Knowledge Management. I’ve developed Juggl, a plugin for Obsidian.md that adds a useful and customizable graph view. Other plugins include Graph Analysis, which uses graph theory algorithms to find similarities between notes, and Supercharged Links.

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