Ben Lengerich

Hello! I'm a rising fourth-year Ph.D. student in the CS Department at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Eric Xing.

My research is motivated by the promise of precision medicine and focused on methodology for uncovering meaningful patterns from complex data. Challenges that I'm currently thinking about include: correlated variables, high-dimensional datsets, and extreme sample heterogeneity.

A few of my recent publications are listed below. For a more complete list, refer here.

I recently co-founded Carnegie Mellon AI+. If you are interested in sponsoring talks, contact me by email.
