Prateek is a Ph.D. student at the University of Oxford, supervised by Professor M. Pawan Kumar and co-supervised by Professor Andrea Lodi and Professor Yoshua Bengio. His Ph.D. is fully sponsored by The Alan Turing Institute. Prateek also worked for a year and a half as a visiting researcher at Montréal Institute of Learning Algorithms (Mila), Montréal, Canada.

Research interests

Prateek's primary research focuses on improving combinatorial optimization using deep learning (e.g., automated heuristics in discrete solvers) or improving deep learning reasoning using optimization layers. He is excited about using technology or AI for societally impactful problems.
