About me

My research focus is rigorous methodological innovation in machine learning. I teach classes in machine learning, probability and optimization. I am also interested in learning from and using my ideas in industry; I have been a Visiting Scientist at Google Research, a senior quant at the stat-arb fund Engineers Gate, and am currently a Principal Scientist and Amazon Scholar at Amazon. Formal Bio


  • I am excited to join Amazon as a Principal Research Scientist and Amazon Scholar.

  • We (along with a team of 7 other colleagues from ECE, CS, Math and Statistics at UT Austin) were chosen for an NSF TRIPODS award to found the Institute for Data Science at UT Austin. More news on this (postodcs, phd fellowships, seminars, workshops) very soon !
