 Education:
PhD  Massachusetts Institute of Technology  2001 
 Specialties:

Data Mining and Machine Learning
Nonparametric Statistical Modelling Stochastic Processes Bayesian Statistics Highdimensional Statistical Models Graphical Models
 Research Interests: Computational biology, geometry and topology, machine learning
My research interests are in computational biology
and machine learning. In both contexts I am interested in using geometry to improve statistical models for highdimensional data.
