Research interests

I am mainly interested in the design and analysis of algorithms for tackling the challenges of massive data. This particularly involves several fields of research such as

  • streaming and distributed algorithms,
  • randomized linear algebra,
  • machine learning,
  • computational statistics,
  • computational geometry,
  • convex optimization.
  • I am also interested in cooperating on possible applications.
