Nidhi Hegde

Short Bio

I'm the Applied Research team lead at Borealis AI, Edmonton, Canada. Borealis AI is an RBC institute for research. Before joining in March 2018, I was a researcher at Bell Labs, Nokia, in France since January 2015, and most recently was leading a new team focussed on Maths and Algorithms for Machine Learning in Networks and Systems, in the Maths and Algorithms group of Bell Labs. From July 2010 to December 2014 I was a researcher at the Technicolor Paris Research Labs. Before that I was at France Telecom R&D in Jim Robert's Performance analysis group from 2005-2010. From mid-2003 to 2005 I was at CWI and Eurandom in the Netherlands, and from late 2001 to 2003 I was a postdoctoral researcher at INRIA at Sophia Antipolis, France.

Research Interests

Probabilistic modelling and algorithmic design of machine learning for networked and multi-agent systems, inference under bias and privacy constraints.
