October 2014 We will be presenting Loco at Distributed Machine Learning and Matrix Computations and RadaGrad at Optimization for ML at NIPS.

September 2014 Our paper "Fast and Robust Least Squares Estimation in Corrupted Linear Models" is accepted to NIPS 2014 as a spotlight presentation!

April 2014 Software for large scale randomized linear regression now available.

November 2013 Software for our NIPS 2013 paper now available.

September 2013 Our paper "Correlated random features for fast semi-supervised learning" is accepted to NIPS 2013.

Information about the fall semester offering of Probabilistic Graphical Models can be found here.

About me:

I am a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the
Machine Learning Laboratory, ETH Zurich. I am particularly interested in randomized algorithms and random features for large scale learning.

I completed my Ph.D. in April 2012 in the Statistics Section of the Department of Mathematics Imperial College, London under the supervision of Giovanni Montana .

Previously, I did the MSc. in Informatics specialising in Machine Learning, Neuroinformatics and Intelligent Robotics at the University of Edinburgh and a BEng. in Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Warwick.
