Aparna Gupte
I am a senior at MIT, majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics. Broadly, my research interests are in the area of machine learning theory, and its connections to cryptography, complexity theory and algorithm design. I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Vinod Vaikuntanathan and Prof. Ankur Moitra. Currently, I'm interested in the computational hardness of statistics problems and deep learning theory.
Outside of research and classes, I enjoy music, art, reading books, and playing badminton. In the past, I have cochaired the Panini Linguistics Olympiad Problem Committee, where we design fun linguistics puzzles for the annual competition.
