Rethinking the Role of Optimization in Learning

In this talk, I will overview our recent progress towards understanding how we learn large capacity machine learning models, especially deep neural networks. In the modern practice of deep learning, many successful models have far more trainable parameters compared to the number of training examples.

Astrophysics as a Testbed for Statistical Method Development

There have been many efforts to apply methods from machine learning and statistics to make discoveries in astrophysics and throughout the physical sciences. While it is clear that the use of these methods has advanced our science goals, I will argue that these collaborations can also advance research in machine learning.

The Many Faces of Regularization: from Signal Recovery to Online Algorithms

In optimization, regularization plays several distinct roles. In the first part of the talk, we consider sample-efficient recovery of signals with low-dimensional structure, which is ill-posed without regularization.
