Ahmet Alacaoglu

I am a postdoctoral research associate working with Stephen J. Wright at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I completed my PhD in Computer and Communication Sciences at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2021. Prior to that, I obtained my BSc in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University in 2016.

My research interests are in optimization, machine learning and reinforcement learning. I especially like understanding the theoretical properties of practical optimization algorithms and improving them.
