Amazon Professor of Machine Learning

Department of Statistics

I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Washington.  My research interests include Bayesian and nonparametric Bayesian approaches to time-series and longitudinal data analysis, with an emphasis on extensions to high-dimensional data.

Following a two-year postdoc in the Duke Department of Statistical Science working with Prof. Mike West and Prof. David Dunson, I spent a year as an assistant professor in the Wharton Department of Statistics, University of Pennsylvania.  In 2009, I received my Ph.D. in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department at MIT, working with Prof. Alan Willsky as a member of the Stochastic Systems Group (SSG) within MIT's Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS).  While pursuing my Ph.D., I collaborated with, among others, Dr. Erik Sudderth, Prof. Michael Jordan, and Dr. John Fisher.
