This semester I will be teaching a graduate course on theoretical machine learning, with an emphasis on algorithmic problems. See the course webpage for 18.S996: Algorithmic Aspects of Machine Learning!
News: Co-organizing NIPS 2013 workshop: Topic Models: Computation, Application, and Evaluation, please consider submitting your papers! The deadline for submissions is October 23rd.
Hi! I am an Assistant Professor of Applied Math at MIT and a member of CSAIL. I am interested in algorithms and learning and a major goal in my research is to give algorithms with provable guarantees for various problems in machine learning. Often, these problems are solved in practice through a variety of heuristics -- Can we give a theoretical explanation for why these algorithms are so successful? For more information, see my publications.
