My CV and google citation page.
I have general research interests in theoretically underexplored methodologies of machine learning, statistics and signal processing. I am interested in understanding their statistical efficiency and adaptivity to data/signal structure in the setup of high dimensions or low sample complexities, particularly under low-assumption or assumptionless frameworks.
