I am a Postdoctaral Fellow at ETH
in the Learning
& Adaptive Systems Group
with Andreas Krause
I finished my PhD at the University
in 2012, under the supervision of Csaba
. I was a member of the Reinforcement Learning and
Refresh for more
My research interest is machine learning. My goal is to
better understand the theoretical limitations of machine
learning. Currently I am focusing on online learning. See my
