About Me

I am presently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Vector Institute, working with Prof. Daniel Roy. I finished my Ph.D. at the University of Toronto where I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Ben Liang and Prof. Min Dong.  My CV is here.

My general research interests cover the broad area of Machine Learning, Optimization, and Internet of Things. My Ph.D. research is focused on developing theory and practices for next generation large-scale distributed and heterogeneous networks. I am currently working in the area of theoretical machine learning. In particular, I am studying the stability and convergence of accelerated stochastic gradient method.
