Venkata Gandikota (GV)
I am a postdoctoral researcher in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, working with Prof. Arya Mazumdar. Before this, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University, working with Prof. Xin Li on error-correcting codes.
I am interested in the foundations of data science and machine learning. In the past, I have thoroughly enjoyed working on lattices and error-correcting codes.
Sept 1, 2019: I am visiting Prof. Barna Saha at University of California, Berkeley, CA.
May 1, 2019: I will be attending the ICML workshops (June 14-15) at Long Beach, CA to present my work on
- "Private vector-quantized SGD", in Workshop on Security and Privacy of Machine Learning.
- "Reliable distributed clustering", in Coding Theory for Large-Scale Machine Learning.
Oct 2, 2018: I joined UMass Amherst as a data science postdoctoral researcher.
