Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Principal Investigator, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
Stefanie Jegelka is an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. She is also an investigator at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and the Operations Research Center. Her research focuses on algorithmic machine learning, and spans modeling, optimization algorithms, theory and applications. In particular, her research group has been working on exploiting mathematical structure for discrete and combinatorial machine learning problems, for robustness and for scaling machine learning algorithms.
Jegelka has received a Sloan Research Fellowship, an NSF Career Award, a DARPA Young Faculty Award, a Google research award and a German Pattern Recognition Award. She earned a PhD at the Max Planck Institutes in Tuebingen and at ETH Zurich, and was a postdoc at University of California, Berkeley.
