I am interested in the mathematical foundations of machine learning and artificial intelligence. I focus on the design of provably efficient and practical algorithms that are relevant for a broad range of paradigms, where I hope these advancements can help in making progress on core AI problems. My current interests include : i) reinforcement learning and controls ii) representation (and deep) learning and iii) natural language processing and memory. I enjoy collaborating with a diverse set of researchers to tackle these issues!
