I am a machine learning researcher mainly interested in online optimization, bandit problems, and reinforcement learning theory. My general research mission is to bring theory and practice closer together by proving theoretical performance guarantees of practical algorithms and making principled learning algorithms more accessible to practicioners. In particular, I am trying to find out whether there exist fundamental trade-offs between computational and information-theoretic efficiency in machine learning.
