Short Bio

Recent Awards, Honors and Press Releases:

Research Interests

I am interested in building algorithms that learn from experience, to be able to perform their tasks better. Some of my work has

  • an application pull -- i.e., is motivated by very specific tasks;
  • a technology push -- typically extending standard learning algorithms and analyses, to produce more robust and more effective learning systems
These systems have been successfully used to address a number of real-world challenges.

For an overview of some medical application for machine learning, see the video, or website.

Thought for the day:

    First things first; second things never.
I plan to update this daily... but that is not the highest priority.
