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
