IMS NRC Travel Award, 2017Research Interest
I am trained as a theoretical statistician, but I like to think like a data engineer. There are so many things that statisticians can say about data engineering and machine learning. For example, confidence intervals can be constructed for certain machine learning problems. It is my aim to create uncertainty quantification methods for machine learning problems by taking advantage of the wisdom of statistics.
