Research interests: My research interests are mainly in the areas of Statistical Learning Theory, Machine Learning and Mathematics of Data Science. I am also very keen to apply Machine Learning methods to solve real-data analysis problems. The goal of my research is to address the computational and statistical challenges arising in modern data analysis, helping the discovery of hidden information in big and complex data.
Open Positions: Postdoctoral Researcher and Graduate Research Assistant positions are available in the areas of statistical learning theory, machine learning, optimization for big data, and mathematics of data science. Please contact me at [email protected] for any inquiries.
