I am an Associate Professor at MIT.
I work in the areas of machine learning and statistics.
Before coming to MIT, I completed my PhD at UC Berkeley.
You can learn more about my background in the following (plaintext) short bio.
In my research, I am interested in understanding how we can reliably quantify uncertainty and robustness in modern, complex data analysis procedures. To that end, I'm particularly interested in Bayesian inference and graphical models – with an emphasis on scalable, nonparametric, and unsupervised learning.
