June 2021 : Waiss Azizian (Student at ENS Paris) visited again our team for six weeks as part of his (previously online) internship to work on differentially robust methods.
Nov. 2020 : Congrats to Dmitry “Mitya” Grishchenko for successfully defending his Ph.D.! The jury included Pascal Bianchi, Peter Richtarik, Julien Mairal, Samuel Vaiter, Alexander Gasnikov and his co-advisors: J. Malick, M. Amini, and I.
June 2020 : Waiss Azizian (Student at ENS Paris) visited our team for six weeks as part of his (previously online) internship to work on extragradient methods.
July 2019 : I was awarded an ANR JCJC grant (Young Research grant from the French Research Agency). The project is named STROLL: Harnessing Structure in Optimization for Large-scale Learning.
June 2019 : I am part of the chair on Optimisation and Learning, lead by Jerome Malick and Yurii Nesterov, funded by the Grenoble AI Institute.
June 2019 : Elnur Gasanov (Student at KAUST with P. Richtarik) visited our team for five weeks to work on distributed optimization.
Mar. 2019 : Alexander Rogozin (Student at MIPT Moscow with A. Gasnikov) visited our team for two weeks to work on distributed structure optimization.
Jan. 2019 : Mathias Chastan began his PhD between ST MicroElectronics and our team. He is co-supervised by A. Lam, J. Malick and I and will work on machine learning for industrial defects detection.
Right now, I am very interested in what happens when optimization algorithms arrive near non-differentiability points, both theoretically and practically. For instance, see:
