Adam Oberman’s current research focuses on mathematical approaches to machine learning: stochastic optimization, regularization approaches, and robust models. He has worked on numerical methods for partial differential equations, and for optimal transportation.
He teaches a machine learning theory course, including generalization theory, and a scientific computing course with a focus on high dimensional methods.
