Dylan Foster is a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, advised by Karthik Sridharan. He is a recipient of the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship. His research is broadly concerned with the theoretical foundations of machine learning and optimization. He is working to develop provable and efficient methods for learning at scale and to characterize the statistical and computational limits of learning, particularly in non-convex settings such as deep learning.
