Portrait of Nitish Keskar 

I'm a Senior Research Scientist at Salesforce Research in Palo Alto where I work on Deep Learning and its applications to Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision. I am particularly interested in efficient training methods and issues pertaining to generalization and scalability.

I received my PhD from Northwestern University in 2017 under the supervision of Prof. Jorge Nocedal and Prof. Andreas Waechter. For my PhD, I focused on efficiently finding solutions to Mathematical Optimization problems which are nonsmooth or stochastic. This includes several problems in Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
