Research interests

My research interests lie in statistical machine learning and image analysis. Past work includes developing target detection methods for hyperspectral images. Currently I am working on distance metric learning, improving methods towards better generalization in practically challenging scenarios, such as the few-shot regime and learning from weak supervision, and stronger (adversarial) robustness. I am interested in environmental and medical applications.
