Apoorv Vikram Singh
PhD Candidate
Computer Science
NYU Tandon

I am a first year PhD student at the department of Computer Science at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, where I am supported by the School of Engineering Fellowship. I am a part of the Algorithms and Foundations Group, where I am being advised by Dr Chris Musco.

Before joining NYU, I was a visiting researcher for four months at INRIA Lille where I worked with Dr Hemant Tyagi and Dr Mihai Cucuringu (Univ of Oxford). Before that I was a Project Associate for a year in the Dept of Computer Science and Automation, Indian Institute of Science, where I worked with Dr Anand Louis and Dr Amit Deshpande (Microsoft Research, India). I obtained my undergraduate degree from IIIT Bangalore.

Research Interests: My research interests lie at the intersection of computer science and statistical machine learning. Currently, I am working on problems in the area of robust statistics, and sub-linear algorithms for spectrum estimation.
