I am George D. Montaņez, a PhD candidate at Carnegie Mellon University in the Machine Learning Department, training under the tutelage of statistical Jedi master Cosma Shalizi. I have worked on problems related to computational biology, spatio-temporal learning, cross-device search, and the information properties of genetic algorithms. My current research explores why machine learning works from a search and dependence perspective, and identifies information constraints on general search processes.
I've won some fellowships and awards, but laurels wither quickly.
I love Jesus, my family, Mexican food, Latin America, Fleetwood Mac, movies, and trying to understand my place in the flow of human history.
