I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. I am also an affiliated member of NYU Center for Data Science.

I received my PhD from the Department of Electical Engineering at Columbia University in the City of New York, where I was also the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science Presidential Fellowship holder (in years 2009-2012). My advisor was prof. Tony Jebara. I was co-advised by prof. Claire Monteleoni. My scientific interests focus on machine learning both theoretical and applicable to the variety of real-life phenomena. Currently my main research projects focus on numerical optimization, deep learning, and large data analysis. I collaborate with NVIDIA (New Jersey lab) on the autonomous car driving project. I am also working on learning from datastreams, learning with expert advice, supervised and unsupervised online learning, clustering, and structured prediction. I have also been working on applying machine learning to analyze neural circuits, particularly 3D reconstruction of neurons from confocal microscopy images and classification of neurons.
