The fellowship will fund Gupta's dissertation research for the 2021-2022 academic year, provide a stipend of $35,000 and offer $5,000 to cover travel to professional conferences. Gupta can renew the fellowship for up to three years. He will also have a Bloomberg mentor and complete a 14-week paid summer internship at Bloomberg next summer.
Gupta, in his fourth year of Ph.D. studies and advised by Aaditya Ramdas, is working on uncertainty quantification for classification and regression problems. Gupta's algorithms work for arbitrarily distributed data, making them highly applicable to real world machine learning settings. This broader distribution-free setting continues to guide Gupta's current and future research.
