A human crisis that calls for solidarity

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. I gratefully acknowledge early career support provided by an NSF CAREER grant (2015) and a Sloan Research Fellowship (2017).

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.
