I'm a senior researcher in the Machine Learning Department, at Microsoft Research, in Redmond, Washington. My main research interests are machine learning, online prediction, statistical learning theory, and optimization.

Recently, I've been focusing on large scale machine learning, online learning against adaptive adversaries, learning in multi-teacher environments, and learning predictors that are intelligible to humans. In the past I have written papers on support vector machines, boosting algorithms, online to batch conversion techniques, bandit problems, incentive compatible learning, and other aspects of statistical and online learning.

In winter 2011 I taught a graduate course on statistical learning theory and in spring 2012 I co-taught a graduate course on online learning at the CS department in the University of Washington.
