Areas of Interest

Dr. Davaloo’s research interests lie in the overlap of convex optimization and statistical learning. Specifically, he is interested in solving model/feature selection problems using first-order methods, providing convergence guarantees, and establishing convergence rates. His works find applications in renewable energy systems, genome association studies, and brain network estimation.
