Curriculum Vitae

I am looking for graduate student interested to work in the intersection of control theory and machine learning. The research involves combination of mathematical analysis and coding. Send me an e-mail if you are interested. Students from A&A, EE, ME and related departments are welcome.

### Research summary

My research interest lies at the intersection of control theory and machine learning. In particular, I have been working on problems that can be modelled as a control or optimization problem on the space of probability distributions, such as Optimal filtering and control, sampling, and optimal mass transportation. The motivation is to design meaningful approximations that can be computed through efficient and scalable numerical algorithms.
