Hi! I am an assistant professor of computer science at Northeastern University. My research interests lie in machine learning, algorithms, learning theory, social and information networks. I am part of the StatsML group and the Theory group.

My recent work has focused on developing the algorithmic and theoretical foundation for modern machine learning techniques. One thrust touches on learning from limited (labeled) data such as multi-task learning, transfer learning under distribution shifts, and data augmentation. The other thrust touches on understanding the dynamics of non-convex optimization algorithms such as SGD in overparametrized neural networks. More broadly, the goal of my work is providing analytical and algorithmic insights for understanding real-world data.
