Research My research interests are in machine learning (ensembles, unsupervised, and semi-supervised learning), efficient algorithms and data structures, and optimization (especially real-world problems).

Currently, I'm doing research on efficient variational algorithms for criterion function minimization in unsupervised learning, under the supervision of Prof. Casimir Kulikowski and Dr. Ilya Muchnik.
