Vahid Tarokh, Rhodes Family Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science

Vahid Tarokh

Vahid Tarokh’s research is in pursuing new formulations and approaches to getting the most out of datasets. Current projects are focused on representation, modeling, inference and prediction from data such as determining how different people will respond to exposure to certain viruses, predicting rare events from small amounts of data, formulation and calculation of limits of learning from observations, and prediction of a macaque monkey's future actions from its brain waves.
