I am an Assistant 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.
My research interests span the theory and practice of machine learning, network and data science, and optimization.
Among my current activities, I am a PC co-chair for ALT 2017, an associate editor of the AMAI journal, and a moderator for the cstheory stackexchange.
