Abstract: TBD

Bio: I am a PhD student in the Computer Science department at Cornell University, where I have the great fortune to be advised by Prof. Karthik Sridharan and Prof. Robert D. Kleinberg. I am interested in theoretical aspects of Machine Learning and Computer Science. Recently, I have been working on understanding non-convex learning from a stochastic optimization viewpoint. I am also interested in theoretical aspects of reinforcement learning (RL).

I completed my undergraduate from Indian Institute of Techonology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur), India in 2016 and, after that, spent a year at Google Research as a part of the Brain Residency program (now called AI Residency).
