In Every City, There's a George Floyd

My research group is engaged in fundamental research in the following areas:

I like to work in multi-disciplinary teams and am currently interested in machine learning problems arising in several scientific areas, especially behavioral sciences, brain sciences, chemistry, learning sciences, life sciences, and medicine. My work has been supported by an NSF CAREER grant (2015), a Sloan Research Fellowship (2017), and an Adobe Data Science Research Award (2020).

My alma maters are IIT Kanpur (B.Tech., 2002) and UC Berkeley (M.A., 2005 and Ph.D., 2007. Advisor: Peter Bartlett). I was a research assistant professor at TTIC from 2008 to 2010. From 2010 to 2012, I was a post-doctoral fellow at UT Austin where I worked with Inderjit Dhillon and Pradeep Ravikumar.

My younger brother Anuj Tewari is a Research Manager at Facebook.

I am one of the organizers of a semester long program on the Theory of Reinforcement Learning that will run during Fall 2020 at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing.
