Welcome to my homepage. I am an associate professor at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In my research, I study the mathematics of machine learning.


Research Interests in Mathematical Machine Learning

  • Adaptive methods in online convex optimization and prediction with expert advice
  • Explainability of machine learning methods
  • Faster-than-minimax rates for ‘easy data’ in statistical and online learning
  • PAC-Bayesian concentration inequalities
  • Statistical learning theory, frequentist analysis of Bayesian methods
