About me

I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, working under the guidance of Peter Richtárik. My focus is on optimization theory and its applications in Machine Learning.

Apart from my studies, I have a keen interest in Harmonic Analysis. This interest started during my final year of bachelor’s studies, where I’ve been collaborating with my Bachelor’s thesis supervisor, Martin Grigoryan.

Outside of academics, I enjoy dancing (bachata, salsa, kizomba), climbing, playing board games, and foosball.
