Lev Reyzin


I am an Associate Professor in the Mathematics (MSCS) Department at UIC, where I am part of the MCS group. I also have a courtesy appointment in Computer Science, and I am part of TCS and TRIPODS efforts across both departments. My research interests span the theory and practice of machine learning, network and data science, and optimization.
