Research Projects

My research is in machine learning and statistics, with basic research on theory, methods, and algorithms. Areas of focus include nonparametric methods, sparsity, the analysis of high-dimensional data, graphical models, information theory, and applications in language processing, computer vision, and information retrieval. Perspectives on several research topics in statistical machine learning appeared in this Statistica Sinica commentary.

This work has received support from NSF, ARDA, DARPA, AFOSR, and Google.
