Research Interests

I’m interested in dimensionality reduction techniques for high-dimensional data. Learning good and compact representations in an unsupervised setting is a key part of that, some examples include contrastive learning and t-SNE.

As  the amount of unlabeled data grows, the performance of the approaches used becomes more important.  Optimization techniques are applicable in surprising settings and are of interest as well.
