Saeed Sharifi-Malvajerdi

I am a fifth year doctoral student, co-advised by Michael Kearns and Aaron Roth, in the Statistics department of The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. I hold Bachelor degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics, both from Sharif University of Technology.

My research interests are in machine learning and algorithms, in particular:

    • Statistical Learning Theory

    • Ethics in ML: Privacy, Fairness, and Data Deletion

    • Adaptive Data Analysis

    • Algorithmic Game Theory
