Statistical Machine Learning and Stochastic Systems

About me. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Arizona in sunny Tucson Arizona. Before joining UA I completed my PhD in Computer Science at Brown University with Erik Sudderth. I also held a postdoc position at MIT CSAIL with John Fisher III.

Research.My research in statistical machine learning aims to build intelligent systems for automated reasoning in stochastic systems. To achieve this requires the development of algorithms that yield efficient inferences, while remaining flexible enough to adapt to complex domains. My research interests span a variety of application domains including computer vision, signal processing, computational biology, and computational neuroscience. For more details see my CV.

For more information about machine learning at UA see our website.
