My name is Ronaldas Paulius Lencevičius (though I go by Ronald) and I'm a statistics PhD student in the Department of Statistics & Applied Probability (PSTAT) @ University of California, Santa Barbara. Previously, I completed a double B.S. in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics as well as a M.S. in Statistics @ California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
My research interests are statistical learning, machine learning theory, kernel methods and more recently optimization. I am also passionate about software development and enjoy contributing to open source projects. I am currently working as a Computing Assistant developing the Computing Wiki for the PSTAT Computing Committee and am an Adjunct Officer for the PSTAT Graduate Student Committee.
Some fun facts: I'm from Lithuania 🇱🇹 and moved to the California in 2004. I love exploring and going out to naturey places. I love driving and have done two coast-to-coast roadtrips in my trusty clunker. Lastly, I am rather fond of cats.
I am happy to connect and chat about anything :^)
