Brief Biography

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department where I am very fortunate to be mentored by Professor Michael I. Jordan and Professor Martin J. Wainwright. Before going to Berkeley, I finished my Phd degree in 2017 at the Department of Statistics, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor where I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Long Nguyen and Professor Ya'acov Ritov.

Research interests

A central theme of my research focuses on four principles of statistics and data science:

  • Heterogeneity (Bayesian nonparametrics, mixture and hierarchical models)

  • Interpretability (model misspecification, deep generative models, convolutional neural networks)

  • Stability (robust statistics, (non)-convex optimization in statistical settings)

  • Scalability (computational optimal transport, sampling and variational inference, distributed computing
