I have two postdoc positions to start in 2017. These are based at IIT in Italy but collaborations and extended visits at UCL are possible. Apply by 31/12/2016 following instructions here.

Research interests: Machine learning theory and algorithms, function representation and approximation, numerical optimization, statistical learning theory. Recently, I mostly worked on kernel methods, multitask and transfer learning, online learning, learning over graphs and sparsity regularization.
