Research
My research interests include machine learning and learning theory, in particular the study of ranking and other new learning problems. I am also interested in applications of machine learning methods, particularly in the life sciences. More broadly, I am excited by research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, and statistics, and its applications to scientific discovery.
