I am a postdoc in the Machine Learning Foundations group at Microsoft Research Redmond.
I recently obtained my PhD in Computer Science at CSAIL, MIT, advised by Piotr Indyk.

My research is on connections between algorithms, data and learning. This goes in two directions:
-- Designing algorithms for massive datasets and scalable machine learning (e.g., 1, 2, 3, 4); and conversely,
-- Learning-assisted algorithms: Using data and machine learning to design better algorithms (e.g., 1, 2).
