Research interests

Our research interests involve the theoretical and practical aspects of machine learning. Our research focuses on mathematically founded solutions to modern real life problems that demonstrate non-traditional statistical behavior. Recent examples are perturbation models that allow efficient learning of high dimensional statistics, deep learning of infinite networks and primal-dual optimization for high-dimensional inference problem. The practice of our work is motivated by many computer vision problems, as well as computational biology and language processing.
