Marwa El Halabi

Research Scientist

I am a research scientist at the Samsung SAIT AI Lab Montreal, within Mila. Before that, I was a PostDoc in the Machine Learning Group  at MIT working with Stefanie Jegelka

I completed my PhD in June 2018 at the Computer and Communication Sciences department at EPFL where I was advised by Volkan Cevher.   Previously, I received my B.Eng. in Computer and Communications Engineering from the American University of Beirut.

I am mainly interested in discrete & continuous optimization problems in Machine learning. In particular, my research has been in submodular optimization, convex optimization, neural networks compression and structured sparsity.
