My research interests include:
  • Machine learning and statistical learning theory;
  • Applications of machine learning, particularly in the life sciences;
  • Ranking and choice models;
  • Connections between machine learning and other disciplines such as economics, operations research, and psychology.
More broadly, I am excited by research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, and statistics, and its ability to turn data into actionable insights in both the natural and social sciences.


Prospective PhD Students: If you are interested in doing a PhD with me, apply to the UPenn CIS PhD program, indicate Machine Learning as your first preference for research area, and list me as a potential research advisor.
