Professor Blake Woodworth's research studies the theory of optimization and machine learning. On the optimization side, he focuses on distributed algorithms for large-scale stochastic optimization problems, especially training machine learning models. On the machine learning side, he is interested in understanding the how and why highly overparametrized models like deep neural networks are able to generalize as well as they do in practice.
