I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Data Science and Mathematics (affiliated) at the Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science, NYU. I belong to the CILVR (Computational Intelligence, Learning, Vision and Robotics) group and I co-founded the MaD (Math and Data) group .
My research interests touch several areas of Machine Learning, Signal Processing and High-Dimensional Statistics. In particular, in the past few years I have been working on Deep Learning, studying some of its theoretical properties. I am interested in generalisations of CNNs to more general geometries and their applications to Physics, Chemistry and Computational Complexity. I also recently started to study the theoretical aspects of Reinforcement Learning and its geometrical properties.
