Ankan Saha

I graduated from the department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago in July 2013. I was very fortunate to be advised by Prof. John Lafferty.
I also worked very closely with Prof. SVN Vishwanathan.
Partha Niyogi will always be the master.

I am broadly interested in topics related to the interplay between (Convex) Optimization and Machine Learning and their applications in Information Retrieval and Social Media.
I work on various areas of Machine learning including optimization of surrogate losses and online learning.
I also dabble with Learning Theory, Computational Geometry and Social Learning at times.

I joined the Applied Relevance Science group in LinkedIn as a researcher after graduation. Please contact me at the email address below.
