Email: mderezin at berkeley edu I am a postdoc at the Foundations of Data Analysis (FODA) Institute at UC Berkeley. Previously, I was a research fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing (Fall 2018, Foundations of Data Science program). I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz, advised by professor Manfred Warmuth. In my research, I develop efficient data sampling techniques with applications to learning theory and optimization. Prior to UCSC, I completed Master's degrees in mathematics and computer science at the University of Warsaw. I also interned at a variety of Silicon Valley research labs (e.g. Microsoft, Yahoo, eBay), working on projects ranging from online learning to largescale distributed optimization. Short overview of my thesis work:
