I am a PhD student in machine learning currently doing research at Max-Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, Tuebingen in Empirical Inference Department headed by Prof. Bernhard Schoelkopf. A learner for life, I am a motivated individual always searching for experiences which push me beyond my comfort zone. My interest is in understanding problems in general machine learning theory and applications. More specifically, I am interested in kernel methods, theoretical foundation of machine learning, (non-)convex as well as stochastic optimization methods. I have also an vivid interest in understanding the problem of domain adaptation and transfer learning.
