I'm a machine learning enthusiast eager to take on new challenges.

About Me

I'm Tim Lebailly

Hey there, welcome to my website!

I recently started a PhD at KU Leuven advised by Prof. Tinne Tuytelaars. Before that, I obtained my master from EPFL with a focus on machine learning. I'm broadly interested in computer vision & ML and working more specifically on self-supervised representation learning for visual data. Outside my PhD, I enjoy traveling and skiing.

My Life in a nutshell

  • Start game


    I was born in a small city of the French-speaking part of Belgium called Namur 🇧🇪. From my dad's side, I also happen to be Canadian 🇨🇦.

  • Awesome childhood!

    Some time ago

    I did a lot of stuff, from practicing basketball and swimming to playing the drums. Also did some wheelies in my free time.

  • Moved to South Korea


    I went to an international school called GSIS near Seoul 🇰🇷. This was a great opportunity to learn English at a young age. Side note: I learned to read Korean.

  • Planting trees!

    Summer 2014

    Being part of an NGO called DBA, we collectively planted more than 2000 trees in Tamil Nadu, India 🇮🇳. This was definitely one of my most memorable trips ever.

  • Start of Bachelor

    September 2015

    Although my mother tongue is French, I did my bachelor at KU Leuven in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium.

  • Start of Master

    September 2018

    This time, I moved to Switzerland 🇨🇭 for a master in Data Science at EPFL. Fun fact: we biked 180 km around Lac Leman the first week without dying.

  • Start of PhD

    April 2021

    Started a PhD in computer vision, let's see where this adventure takes me!
