Research interests

Gábor Lugosi has mostly worked on the mathematics of machine learning, probability, mathematical statistics, information theory, and game theory. His research has been motivated by applications in telecommunications and computer science and also by game-theoretic learning. Recently he has mostly worked on high-dimensional problems in statistics, random graphs, “on-line” learning and sequential optimization, and inequalities in probability theory.
