Shivam Garg

I am a PhD student at Stanford, advised by Greg Valiant . My research interests are in Machine Learning and Algorithms, and using them as a lens to understand biological systems such as the brain. I am supported by the Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship.

I coordinate Algorithms and Friends, an initiative to increase interaction between the theory group and other Stanford researchers. As part of this initiative, we offer help in solving algorithmic questions that come up in applied research. We also organise a seminar where researchers from varied backgrounds share their work with a primarily theory audience. If you would like to give a talk, please conatct me!

Prior to Stanford, I spent a wonderful year at Microsoft Research India working with Deeparnab Chakrabarty and Ravishankar Krishnaswamy. I did my undergrad from IIT Bombay before that.
