I'm a research scientist in the field of machine learning, with a Ph.D. from Univ. of Amsterdam. I've worked on generative models, variational (Bayesian) inference, stochastic optimization, identifiability and other topics. See my Google Scholar profile below for a complete list of research papers.

My full name is Diederik Pieter Kingma, and usually publish under Diederik P. Kingma. My informal callname since birth is "Durk" (pronounced like the English "Dirk") which is a short Frisian version of Diederik.

Currently I work and live in San Francisco.
