Acting Instructor, University of Washington
Vincent Roulet is an Acting Instructor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington. Previously, he was a Postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington, working with the Algorithmic Foundations for Data Science Institute (ADSI) members Zaid Harchaoui, Dmitriy Drusvyatskiy, Maryam Fazel, and Sham Kakade. He received his Ph.D. from Ecole Normale Superieure Ulm (Paris, France) under the supervision of Alexandre d’Aspremont, working in the Sierra team led by Francis Bach. During his thesis, he worked on mathematical optimization approaches for statistical problems with an underlying combinatorial structure and on the acceleration of optimization algorithms by restarts. He is now working on non-linear dynamical problems such as non-linear control problems and deep learning problems.
