My main research interests are in machine learning, computational aspects in economics and game theory, and algorithms. My research is supported in part by National Science Foundation (including an NSF CAREER Award), AFOSR/MURI, ONR, a Microsoft Faculty Research Fellowship, a Sloan Research Fellowship, a Raytheon Fellowship, and a Google Research Award. Prior to Georgia Tech, I was a postdoc at Microsoft Research New England and before that I graduated from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. My Ph.D. thesis New Theoretical Frameworks for Machine Learning received the CMU SCS Distinguished Dissertation Award. For more information see the links below and my resume.

I am a Program Committee co-chair for COLT 2014 and a board member of the International Machine Learning Society. I have recently received the Georgia Power Professor of Excellence award!
