MDSC: Mathematical Data Science Centre

Academic leadership

Professor Shahar Mendelson, the Director of the MDSC, and Professor Peter Bartlett, the Head of Google Research Australia, are world leaders in the theory of Machine Learning.

Shahar Mendelson's main research interest is exploring the surprising and nontrivial connections between high dimensional statistics, statistical learning theory, empirical processes, and asymptotic geometric analysis. Peter Bartlett studies diverse theoretical and applied facets of Machine Learning, e.g., Statistical Learning Theory; the interface between Machine Learning and convex optimisation; and Deep Learning.
