Ph.D., Electrical and Computer Engineering, Duke University, 2013
My research lies at the intersection of Bayesian statistics and machine learning, covering a diverse set of research topics in statistical theory and methods, hierarchical models, Bayesian nonparametrics, statistical inference for big data, and deep learning. I am currently focused on advancing both statistical inference with deep learning and deep learning with probabilistic methods.
