Ph.D. student, Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley.
I work on distributed learning and control.
My research interests lie at the intersection of control theory, learning theory and optimization.
I am advised by Prof. Alex Bayen. I also work with Prof. Peter Bartlett.
Here, you can find a list of my publications and previous work I did.
Our paper on accelerated mirror descent in continuous and discrete time is selected for a spotlight presentation at NIPS (December 2015).
The supplementary material contains proofs and videos.
I recently gave a longer talk on the topic. Here are the slides.
I will be giving a talk at the KAUST conference on Human-Machine Networks and Intelligent Infrastructure (October 6, 2015). Slides
I will be presenting Syrine's work on heterogeneous routing using stochastic mirror descent at Allerton (September 30, 2015). Slides
I will be presenting our work on efficient Bregman projections at CDC 2015 in Osaka (December 2015).
I was awarded the Leon O. Chua Award for outstanding achievement in nonlinear science!
I was awarded the Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award for MFE 230P (Optimization Methods for Finance, part of the Masters of Financial Engineering at the Haas School of Business).
I was awarded the EECS Distinguished Student Teaching Award for EE128 (Feedback control systems), together with Max Balandat. This was a fun class, and Max was a great person to work with!
