Currently, the lab is incredibly busy with presenting our ground-breaking work at NeurIPS 2022.
To do well at these gatherings of the best ML & AI researchers in the world, our students have to work hard. Learning, research, personal and professional progress – being at the van der Schaar Lab means commitment to academic excellence.
However, to be able to be excellent and provide the energy necessary to be a great researcher also needs more than studying hard. A healthy work-life balance, a productive yet collegial environment, and also having fun are important ingredients that make a PhD a great experience.
Recently, we welcomed back some alumni of our lab to dine with our current students, talk about their experiences in Cambridge and their lives after. A great dinner and fantastic evening – a great example how we can be excellent at the van der Schaar Lab and also enjoy our time together!
