I am a third year PhD student in the Computer Science department at Princeton University where I am fortunate to be advised by Elad Hazan.

My research interest is in machine learning theory and algorithms, more specifically online learning with use cases in areas such as reinforcement learning and control, learning in games, etc. I am also interested in large scale convex and nonconvex optimization.

Prior to joining Princeton, I did my undergrad at MIT majoring in both math (18) and computer science (6-3). My earlier life was based in Yerevan, Armenia mainly competing in contests like IMO and IOI.
