Ahmed El Alaoui


Ph.D. Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley.

Advised by Michael I. Jordan.

I am also a member of the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research group.

News: Starting Fall 2018, I will be joining Stanford as a postdoc with Andrea Montanari.

Research interests

I am broadly interested in statistics, probability, optimization, and applications in machine learning. The questions that drive my research are the fundamental limits of extracting information from noisy data, and the algorithmic feasibility considerations surrounding this task.

I recently obtained by PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California at Berkeley, under the supervision of Michael I. Jordan. I did my master's at Ecole Normale Supérieure and my undergrad at Ecole Polytechnique. I wrote my master's dissertation on probabilistic record linkage while working at Ecole des Ponts with Guillaume Obozinski.
