Lisheng Ren

I am a PhD student in Department of Computer Sciences at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Ilias Diakonikolas. Before coming to Madison, I did my undergraduate study at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I am interested in theoretical machine learning and algorithms.
