Research interests

Varun Kanade's research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning and theoretical computer science. At the ATI, his research will focus on mathematical foundations of machine learning, in particular statistical and computational tradeoffs, as well as improving our theoretical understanding of methods successful in practice. His work will also focus on randomized algorithms particularly for analysing large networks.
