I am an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, part of the Systopia lab. Prior to this, I was a postdoc researcher at Microsoft Research in NY. Even before, I completed my PhD at Columbia University under the supervision of Roxana Geambasu, Augustin Chaintreau, and Daniel Hsu.
I am broadly interested in machine learning systems, with a specific focus on applications that provide rigorous guarantees of robustness, privacy, and security. My research focuses both on improving practical and theoretical tools (differential privacy, causal inference, reinforcement learning) and enabling specific use-cases (ML attacks/defenses, privacy preserving data management, system decisions optimization).
I am looking for motivated students (and possibly postdocs) to start in Fall 2021.
