I am an assistant professor at the University of Virginia, with a joint appointment in Systems and Information Engineering and Computer Science. I am also an affiliated faculty member in the Data Science Institute at UVa. My research is in statistical machine learning, with a focus on developing robust, adaptive and efficient machine learning, data mining and optimization algorithms with provable guarantee to understand large-scale, dynamic, complex and heterogeneous data in social and information networks, neuroscience and genomics. I am leading the Statistical Machine Learning Lab. Here is my latest CV.
