Information for prospective students and postdocs
First look at the research topics.
If you are still interested apply to the appropriate graduate
(2) Computer Science
Send me an email after you apply. If you are not sure which program to
apply to or have questions email me.
Send me an email if you are interested. I may be a bit delayed in
responding but I will get back to you within a week. I am currently
not looking for anyone in particular but there are possibilities for
the right candidate.
My work covers three areas of interest
(1) Geometry and topology in probabilistic modeling -- Modeling
geometric and topological properties of objects/data with uncertainty
and noise. Using ideas from geometry and topology for novel
representations of statistical models.
(2) Modeling massive data -- Building statistical models and
algorithms for problems such as dimenison reduction, classification,
or matrix completion that scale to huge numbers of variables and
(2) Applied (Bayesian) models in computational biology -- Modeling
a wide variety of statistical phenomena from functional genomics,
population biology, gene regulation, social/sexual networks,
cell cycle, quantitative genetics. All these projects are in close
collaborations with biologists, epidemiologists, and medical
