Biography

Dr Andrea Caponnetto's main research interests include Statistical Learning Theory, Inverse Problems and Empirical Processes. His recent research projects are aimed at the mathematical understanding of learning algorithms in the non-parametric framework, in the supervised, semi-supervised and multi-task settings. Another guiding line of his research activity is highlighting the strong connection between certain widely used learning algorithms and regularization techniques developed in the context of the ill-posed inverse problems.
