I am a Post-Doctoral Associate in the Computer Science Department at Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University. I am working in the Laboratory of prof. Yann LeCun. Since January 2017 I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering.

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 and deep learning. 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.
