I am a second year PhD student working in convex and non-convex optimization with Prof. Martin Jaggi. My focus is on designing faster and more scalable optimization algorithms for machine learning. Some of my preliminary results and problems I am currently working on- 1. Robust accelerated algorithms - Nesterov acceleration modified to be robust to noise. 2. Faster algorithms which take second order information about the function into account. 3. A $O(1/t^2)$ rate *affine invariant* algorithm for constrained optimization. 4. Frank-Wolfe algorithm for non-smooth functions using 'noisy-smoothing'
