My research spans theoretical and applied machine learning, with a focus but is not limited to 

  • learning (latent variable) probabilistic graphical models in high-dimensions

  • designing scalable and distributed spectral methods with guarantees

  • efficient non-convex optimization with convergence guarantees, especially on tensor decomposition

  • machine learning in social networks, natural language processing, computer vision, neuroscience, healthcare analytics and computational biology
