About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor at Stony Brook University in the departments of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics & Statistics.
Previously, I was at Yahoo Research NY, the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago, the University of Milan, the IDIAP Research Institute, and the University of Genoa.
My current research interest is parameter-free machine learning. In particular I am interested in online learning, domain adaptation, and batch/stochastic convex optimization.
