Javier Burroni

PhD student
University of Massachusetts Amherst

I am a computer science researcher, currently finishing my PhD at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, under the supervision of professor Daniel Sheldon.
Over the past two decades, I have contributed to the areas of Machine Learning, Data Science, Programming Languages, and Information Security through a combination of industry and academic roles.
Although some of my work originated in the southern parts of South America 🧉, it has gained global recognition and advanced the field.
My recent research efforts have been divided into two main areas: developing more efficient machine learning algorithms and enhancing programming languages as powerful tools of thought.
In addition to my computer science background, I hold a degree in actuarial sciences from the University of Buenos Aires and a master’s degree in economics from the Torcuato Di Tella University. These degrees have not only given me a strong understanding of probability, enhancing my work in computer science, but also helped me develop an interest in real-world problems, which continues to motivate some of my research.

Sep 12, 2023 I gave a talk at basis.ai and presented our work on Sample Average Approximation for VI and U-statistics for IWVI. It was very enjoyable to give a talk and discuss with such a thoughtful audience. Thanks to Zenna for the invitation!
Jul 20, 2023 I will be attending AABI and ICML 2023 in Hawaii. Feel free to stop by and say hi!
