Nino Scherrer Portrait

Nino Scherrer


I am a research intern at the Vector Institute under the supervision of Prof. Animesh Garg. Previously, I was a research intern at Mila under the supervision of Prof. Yoshua Bengio and working closely with Nan Rosemary Ke, Anirudh Goyal and Prof. Stefan Bauer.

My research interest centers around the causal perspective on machine learning with a focus on causal discovery, representation learning and reinforcement learning. I did my masters and bachelors in computer science at ETH Zürich and collaborated with Mila and MPI for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen during my master thesis on active neural causal discovery. Previously, I did a diploma (vocational education) in computer science and worked multiple years as a systems engineer at SFS AG.
