Alexandru Coca

Research Engineer
Alex has graduated with a System Engineering MEng degree in 2015. Following a two-year stint at Jaguar Land Rover where he was responsible for the system integration of complex semi-autonomous driving functions as part of their Highly Automated Driving Team, he has decided to pursue his passion for machine learning by enrolling on the MPhil in Machine Learning, Speech and Language Technology at the University of Cambridge. He was a Cambridge European Scholar and also received a Department of Engineering Bursary and a Corpus Christi College MPhil Studentship. His thesis focused on differential privacy and was done in collaboration with Amazon Research.

After graduating in 2018, Alex joined a startup to work on speech-to-speech translation for a year as a machine learning engineer and transitioned to a research engineer position at Seldon in September 2019. At Seldon, his main focus is on working on model explanation algorithms, outlier detection and dataset shift, contributing to the company's open source releases in these areas.

As far as speaking experience is concerned, I have presented my third year research project at the International Conference of Undergraduate Research organised by the University of Warwick (2014). I also held a seminar on non-linear dynamical systems in 2015. In 2017, I presented my ongoing research in differential privacy to the attendees of the Industry Day, an event organised by th Cambridge University Department of Engineering where graduate machine learning students present their ongoing research to academics and industry guests (e.g., attendees include senior researchers from Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Prowler.io, to name a few).
