Associated Research Thrust: 

My research is at the interface of Machine Learning, Statistics, and Optimization. I am interested in formalizing the process of learning, in analyzing the learning models, and in deriving and implementing the emerging learning methods. A significant thrust of my research is in developing theoretical and algorithmic tools for online prediction, a learning framework where data arrives in a sequential fashion.
