Thang D. Bui

I'm looking for PhD/MPhil students and a postdoc. Please see my research interests below, my publications and read through this page.


I'm a lecturer (equivalent to tenure-track Assistant Professor) in Machine Learning at the School of Computing, Australian National University since July 2022.

Before that, I was a lecturer at the University of Sydney from 2018 to 2022 and spent two years (2019-2020) at Uber AI.

I completed my doctoral training at the Cambridge Machine Learning group, supervised by Richard Turner and advised by Carl Rasmussen.

My current research interests include probabilistic modelling and inference, Monte Carlo and approximate inference methods, distributed, active and continual leaning, and model-based reinforcement learning.


  • 7/2022: I joined ANU as a tenure-track faculty member.

  • 2/2022: New work on Bayesian federated learning, led by Matt Ashman is now available on arxiv.

  • 2022: I'm an area chair for NeurIPS 2022 and an action editor for TMLR.

  • 2021: I was awarded an unrestricted grant from Facebook and was an area chair for NeurIPS 2021.
