My research focuses on machine learning and its applications to solving important real-world problems including healthcare and fairness. In particular, I am curious about approximation techniques, intepretative and useful learning, and all things related to graphical models.
Current research projects include
The more that you read, the more things you will know,
the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go
