I’m a research scientist at Samsung SAIT AI Lab Montreal (SAIL Montreal). Furtheremore I am doing a post-doc at Mila with Simon-Lacoste Jullien. My current research is focused on optimization algorithm for machine learning models with big data. Before joing Samsung, I was Phd student at University of British Columbia under the supervision of Mark Schmidt where I was a member of Laboratory for Computational Intelligence. My Phd research was mainly about stochastic variance reduced methods for convex optimization.
