Hi, this is J.J. Zhu. I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, at the Empirical Inference Department.

### Research interests

In general, I am an applied mathematician interested in **optimization, probability, data, and dynamical systems**. More specifically, I am interested in the following technical topics.

- Robust and stochastic optimization
- Stochastic systems and optimal control
- Numerical optimization and analysis
- Functional analysis and applied probability theory
- Robustness in machine learning, kernel methods
