I am a senior researcher in the Machine Learning Groups at Microsoft Research, located in Redmond, WA. I received my Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University in 2004, where I was also part of the Information Systems Laboratory. Before joining Microsoft in 2006, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for the Mathematics of Information at California Institute of Technology.

My current research interests include theory and algorithms for large-scale optimization, stochastic and online algorithms for machine learning, and parallel and distributed computing.
