I’m a masters student supervised by Dr. Hassan Ashtiani in the Department of Computing and Software, McMaster University. I recently completed my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering at the same University. My name is pronounced Is-hak.

Research Interests:

I am mainly interested in studying problems at the intersection of theoretical computer science, machine learning and statistics. My current research focuses on questions related to statistical learning theory and distribution learning. In particular, I’m interested in understanding which problems can (or cannot!) be provably solved by algorithms that are both statistically and computationally efficient.

I am also very interested in private data analysis (via differential privacy) and mathematical optimization.
