Research Interests

  • Statistical/Bayesian inference, the associated optimization techniques, and their connection to sampling

  • Model selection and evaluation

  • Design and analysis of learning algorithms: MCMC, stochastic/approximate algorithms, relaxations

  • Stochastic processes and nonparametrics: modeling for social interactions (networks), human behaviors and decisions

  • Connecting ML and statistical mechanics: Monte Carlo, belief propagation, phase transition, etc.
