About meI am a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley, with Martin Wainwright and Bin Yu. Before this, I was a PhD student in the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. My advisor is Jaime Carbonell. I am also extremely fortunate to work with Larry Wasserman, John Lafferty, and Aarti Singh.
WorkshopsI am co-organizing two workshops at NIPS 2012.
ResearchI am broadly interested in statistical machine learning, i.e. in understanding the statistical properties of machine learning algorithms. I am also interested in convex optimization and applications of machine learning to computational biology. Some of my publications are here.
Other stuffI am also one of the organizers of the Machine Learning Lunch at CMU. If you would like to give a talk please send me an email. We also organize a Statistical Machine Learning Reading Group.
