Elnur Gasanov
I am a first year MS/PhD student in Computer Science under the supervision of professor Peter Richtárik. I am also affiliated with the Visual Computing Center at KAUST. Prior to this, I earned my bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. My research interests are mainly in Optimization for Machine Learning and Randomized Numerical Linear Algebra. Besides research, I enjoy going to the gym, swimming and windsurfing.

Recent publications
The state-of-the-art methods for solving optimization problems in big dimensions are variants of randomized coordinate descent (RCD). In this paper we introduce a fundamentally new type of acceleration strategy for RCD based on the augmentation of the set of coordinate directions by a few spectral or conjugate directions...
