Emil is currently exploring code synthesis, mathematical reasoning, and deep reinforcement learning. He's studying Computer Science at 42 Paris. In 2018, he made a popular open source project that translates design mock-ups into HTML/CSS, Screenshot-to-code. Google recently recognized him as a Google Developer Expert on Machine Learning.

His blog is translated to a dozen languages, which reaches over a million developers each year. Emil used to work for Oxford's business school and he started a seed investment firm focussed on education technology. Email: w@llner.co

Looking for a deep learning engineering/research internship at the end of 2019.

Quirks

  • I've lived in Ghana where I volunteered as a teacher and accidentally became the king of the village I lived in.
  • I joined a music group and toured a dozen countries. My highlight was a Spanish solo for 6k Mexicans. (For the record, I'm a terrible singer. I only got the opportunity because the three first options were sick.)
  • For a year, I lived as a digital nomad in southeast Asia, the States, and South Africa.
  • I run the equivalent of a marathon every week, only wear black, and I own less than a hundred objects.
  • I've participated in a silent retreat and taken several solo trips to remote parts of the world.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
