Join us

We are always looking for motivated undergraduate and graduate students to work with us. There are many interesting and challenging research problems to work on across different disciplines, from theory to applications. I am especially interested in working with students with a background in machine learning, mathematics, optimization, and algorithms. If you are interested, please send me an email (amotong at, include your CV, and describe what aspect of my research is interesting to you.
