Hi, this is Siqi Zhang. Now I am a Rufus Isaacs Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMS) of Johns Hopkins University (JHU).

I got my Ph.D. degree from the ISE Department of UIUC in June 2022, supervised by Prof. Niao He.

Research Intersts

Broadly speaking, I am interested in optimization and its applications in machine learning. Recently, I am focusing on the following topics:

  • Nonconvex optimization

  • Minimax optimization

  • Lower bound analysis in optimization

  • Intersection of opitmization with sampling, control and reinforcement learning


  • [2022.06] Successfully passed the Ph.D. dissertation defense!

  • [2021.05] One paper is accepted to UAI 2021, thanks to all the wonderful collaborators!

  • [2021.05] I will work as a research intern in MERL this summer.
