Open positions:

  • I am searching for bright postdocs and students interested in machine learning algorithms and applications for physics-rich problems, check the positions anouncement page

News and events:

  • Stay tuned for the third edition of the Physics Informed Machine Learning (PIML 2020) workshop in Santa Fe, NM in January 2020. Previously, we organized and hosted PIML 2018 and PIML 2016.
  • On April 19-21 2019, I am co-organizing a session on optimization, inference and learning at Los Alamos – Arizona Days in Tucson, AZ.
  • Our new paper on learning arbitrary discrete graphical models is out on arXiv
  • Our paper “Optimal structure and parameter learning of Ising models” has been published in Science Advances

Research interests:

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.
