My research interests are in Machine Learning, with a focus on:
Statistical learning theory
Adversarial/competitive online learning (aka individual sequence prediction) and its connections to classical statistical learning
High dimensional learning problems: statistical and computational aspects
Optimization algorithms: with a focus on large and/or high dimensional data sets
Reinforcement learning and bandit problems: with a focus on exploration vs. exploitation dilemma
Applications of machine learning techniques to problems in behavioral sciences, computational biology, computational chemistry, learning sciences, and network science
My almae matres are IIT Kanpur (B.Tech., 2002) and UC Berkeley
(M.A., 2005 and Ph.D., 2007. Advisor: Peter Bartlett).
I was a research assistant professor at TTIC from 2008 to 2010.
From 2010 to 2012, I was a post-doctoral fellow at UT Austin where I worked with Inderjit Dhillon and
My wife, Shilpa, is finishing up her M.S. at UM's School of Information. My brother, Anuj, also finished his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley and is now working for GE Global Research.
