My name is Othmane Marfoq. I am a final-year PhD student at Inria Sophia-Antipolis (Team NEO). I work on federated learning and distributed optimization under the supervision of Giovanni Neglia. I am visiting Aryan Mokhtari at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) until June 2023.

My research interest lies in providing theoretical understanding of distributed and federated learning systems. Inspired by the theoretical insights, I seek to design large-scale distributed/federated learning algorithms that can efficiently exploit data and system resources, with a specific attention to fairness and robustness. My research is characterized by the application of mathematical tools from distributed optimization and statistical learning theory.
