Diego Ihara


I am a PhD Student at the CS Department of the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am working under the guidance of Anastasios Sidiropoulos, as part of the theory group.

My research interests include Computational Geometry and Machine Learning Theory. You can find more about me in my LinkedIn profile here. There is some code I wrote on GitHub.
