Research Interests: Theoretical computer science, with the main emphasis on the design and the analysis of approximation algorithms and proving hardness of approximation bounds for NP-hard problems, especially those with strong connections to graph theory.
PhD - MIT
Research Interests: Machine learning, statistics, and information theory, with focus on data scarcity. Forecasting and compression under rare events and using such methods to regularize learning tasks. Applications to modeling natural language, climate extremes, and rare societal events. Statistical and computational tradeoffs using coresets and sketching.
PhD - MIT
Research Interests: Computational vision and machine learning. His current research is focused on automatic understanding of visual scenes, including recovery of three-dimensional structure and detection and categorization of objects. He is also generally interested in similarity-based, supervised and semi-supervised statistical learning methods.
PhD - MIT
