Harshay Shah

Iā€™m a research fellow at Microsoft Research India, where I work with Praneeth Netrapalli and Prateek Jain. My research focuses on understanding deep learning phenomena through theory and empirics.

I obtained my B.S. in Computer Science & Statistics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), where I was advised by Hari Sundaram, Sewoong Oh, and Sanmi Koyejo.

My research interests span theoretical machine learning, statistical inference, optimization, and game theory. In my spare time, I like to read, run, and watch Cricket šŸ.
