I'm a third year Ph.D. student at the University of Minnesota in the Department of
Computer Science and Engineering. My advisor is Maria Gini
and my co-advisor is Arindam Banerjee.
My research interests span many different areas such as Artificial Intelligence,
Machine Learning, Algorithms, Game Theory, and Computational Biology. Currently
I'm interested in prediction with expert advice problems and how algorithms can
be developed for use in multiagent systems when we must consider risk, regret,
and cooperation. I'm also interesting in online convex optimization problems
with applications in portfolio selection.
