Short bio

I am a Professor in the Department of Statistics at UC Berkeley. I am also a Principal Investigator in the Delphi group. From 2011-2022, I was a faculty member in Statistics and Machine Learning at Carnegie Mellon University. From 2007-2011, I did my Ph.D. in Statistics at Stanford University, with Jonathan Taylor as my thesis advisor. From 2003-2007, I did my B.S. in Mathematics at Stanford.

Research interests

My research interests lie broadly in statistics, machine learning, and optimization; and I like to think about problems from different angles: applied, computational, theoretical. More specifically, my interests include high-dimensional statistics, nonparametric estimation, distribution-free inference, convex optimization, and numerical methods. I also have a significant applied focus on tracking and forecasting epidemics.

Professional service

I am currently Editor-in-Chief for Foundations and Trends in Machine Learning, and an elected member of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics Council.

Other current and past service roles can be found on my CV.
