Summary

I am interested in building algorithms that learn from experience, to be able to perform their tasks better. Most of my current work has a strong application pull -- i.e., is motivated by some specific tasks: for example, to better understand brain tumors (from MRI scans), various cancers based on microarray data, Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, and/or metabolic profiles. Some other projects are more technology push -- where the goal is more exploring some foundation or mathematical framework, rather than solving some application: such as learning Bayesian belief nets, active learning and addressing high-dimensional data ("large p, small n").
