Arun Tejasvi Chaganty about articles blog thoughts research


I’m currently a PhD student in computer science at Stanford University with Percy Liang. I’m passionate about the machine learning and optimization, and have some experience.

Me, with a whiteboard. Ironically, none of the math written in the background is actually mine.

Behold, me explaining math.

Research Interests

Machine learning interests me because of its mix of algorithms, analysis and statistics. Concretely, I’m pursuing two goals; firstly, I want to understand how we can learn latent variable models in a consistent and efficient manner. Secondly, I am interested in information extraction in the context of question answering. In the past, I’ve also worked on probabilistic programming, statistical relational learning and hierarchical reinforcement learning.
