I was co-general chair for COLT 2013, COLT 2014, and I am/was on the program committee for NIPS 2012, NIPS 2014, COLT 2013, COLT 2014,
ALT 2013, ALT 2014. I am also on the steering committee for COLT.
Currently I'm especially interested in (i) the interplay between convexity and randomness in optimization, and (ii) inference problems on random graphs.
combinatorial statistics/analysis of networks
applications of information theory to learning, optimization, and probability
