Research subject

I'm working on algorithms for optimization on Riemannian manifolds, and optimal scaling of MCMC algorithms.

There is a current trend in which statistical learning methods are used in conjunction with differential geometric techniques. One of the main ideas behind these models is to assume that the observations belongs to some Riemannian manifold.

Our main goal is to develop a coherent framework for:
