I'm a faculty member in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. 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.
