About Me

I am currently a fourth year Ph.D. student. I work on statistical machine learning. My current research interests include datasets harmonization (DA/TL/MTL), multivariate time series, large scale network, graphical causal models, generative adversarial networks and (non)convex-optimization. I'm also interested in statistical applications to computer vision, neuroscience, etc.
