Internship project topic: Scalable and Universal Second Order Methods for Convex Optimization
I have done a Bachelor in Physics and currently I am a Master student in Applied Physics at EPFL. Physics deals with all kinds of phenomena, but I am particularly interested in how it appears in complex systems, such as a large number of interacting particles or a large data set. These systems, although sometimes governed by simple laws, can result in complicated behaviours that are universal and can be generalized to other systems. This is what statistical physics allows us to study.
