Biography

I'm a fourth year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My advisors are Arindam Banerjee and Maria Gini. I was a visiting student last summer at the Australian National University where I was advised by Bob Willliamson as part of the NSF 2013 East Asia and Pacific Islands Summer Institutes Fellowship.

Research

I'm broadly interested in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. In particular, my focus has been on online learning algorithms, convex optimization, adversarial learning models, and recommender systems. The application areas I have worked in are finance (portfolio selection), climate science (forecasting), internet content serving (news article recommendations), and cancer genomics.
