Research

My research interests include:
  • Machine learning and statistical learning theory;
  • Applications of machine learning, particularly in the life sciences;
  • Ranking and choice models;
  • Connections between machine learning and other disciplines such as economics, operations research, and psychology.
More broadly, I am excited by research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, and statistics, and its ability to turn data into actionable insights in both the natural and social sciences.
