Research Interests

​My research interests are in the area of data mining, machine learning and optimization. The main focus is on clustering, topic models and stochastic optimization. I have ever worked on community detection involving the methodologies such as probabilistic graph models, variational Bayesian inference, information geometry, and so on. I also worked on stochastic optimization for designing stochastic eigensolvers with theoretical guarantees
