David Lopez-Paz is a postdoctoral researcher at Facebook AI Research, Paris, France. Prior to joining Facebook in 2016, David was a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Cambridge, advised by Bernhard Schölkopf and Zoubin Ghahramani. Before that, David obtained a degree in Computer Science from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in 2011. During his studies, David interned at various industries, including the European Space Agency, Google Research, and the Red Bull Formula 1 team.

The goal of David’s research is to develop theory and algorithms for unsupervised causal inference, and their use to build machines which are able to reason and learn about the world using less data.
