I am an X-Consortium Career Development Assistant Professor at MIT EECS, and a member of CSAIL, IDSS, the Center for Statistics and Machine Learning at MIT.
Before that, I was a postdoc in the AMPlab and computer vision group at UC Berkeley, and a PhD student at the Max Planck Institutes in Tuebingen and at ETH Zurich.
My research is in algorithmic machine learning, and spans modeling, optimization algorithms, theory and applications. In particular, we have been working on exploiting mathematical structure for discrete and combinatorial machine learning problems.
More details about my research can be found in these publications.
