- I am searching for postdocs and students (graduate and undergraduate) interested in machine learning algorithms for physics-rich problems, check the positions anouncement page
News and events:
- In January 2018, I co-organized the second edition of the Physics Informed Machine Learning (PIML 2018) workshop in Santa Fe. Previously, we organized and hosted PIML 2016 in January 2016.
- In November 2017, I have co-organized the workshop Data Mining for Cyberphysical and Industrial Systems (DMCIS 2017) as a part of ICDM 2017 in New Orleans. All accepted papers are included in the IEEE ICDM 2017 Workshops Proceedings.
- Our paper “Optimal structure and parameter learning of Ising models” has been published in Science Advances
- Our recent paper on optimization in spreading dynamics has been published in PNAS, check the research highlights page
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.
