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 efforts across both departments. My research interests span the theory and practice of machine learning, network and data science, and optimization.

Among my current activities, I am a local co-chair and PC member for ALT 2019, a member of the RANDOM 2018 PC, an associate editor of the journal AMAI, and a moderator for cstheory. I was recently PC co-chair for ALT 2017, a special session chair for ISAIM 2018, and a member of the AAAI 2018 SPC.
