News and events:
- Don’t miss the third edition of the Physics Informed Machine Learning (PIML 2020) workshop that I co-organize in Santa Fe, NM on January 13-17, 2020. Apply for travel grants before November 15, 2o19! Previously, we organized and hosted PIML 2018 and PIML 2016.
- I am co-organizing an IMA workshop “Theory and Algorithms in Graph-Based Learning” to be held September 14-18 2020 in Minneapolis, MN.
- Our new paper on learning arbitrary discrete graphical models is out on arXiv
My research interests lie at the intersection of statistical physics, computer science and machine learning. I develop new statistical physics inspired algorithms to deal with hard problems in graphical models, machine learning, complex systems, quantum computing and data mining. I am also interested in general optimization, inverse, combinatorial and out-of-equilibrium problems on graphs. Check out the research higlights for details.
