Bio: Pradeep Ravikumar is a Professor in the Machine Learning Department, School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He was previously an Associate Director at the Center for Big Data Analytics, at the University of Texas at Austin. His thesis has received honorable mentions in the ACM SIGKDD Dissertation award and the CMU School of Computer Science Distinguished Dissertation award. He is a Sloan Fellow, a Siebel Scholar, a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, and was Program Chair for the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics (AISTATS) in 2013. He is Associate Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), and action editor for the Machine Learning journal, and the Journal of Machine Learning Research.
Dr. Ravikumar’s research group at CMU works on the foundations of statistical machine learning, with recent focus on “next generation” machine learning systems, that are explainable, robust to train and test time corruptions, and resilient to distribution shifts, and are learnt under resource constraints by leveraging or discovering various notions of “structure” and domain knowledge.
