I will be joining the Department of Operations Research & Financial Engineering at Princeton University in fall 2020. Previously, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I received my PhD in Statistics and Data Science from Yale University in 2018, where I was fortunate to have been mentored by Andrew Barron. From 2017 to 2018, I was a visiting graduate student in the statistics department at Wharton.
I am a senior personnel on TRIPODS DATA-INSPIRE Institute at Rutgers, which is a new, trans-disciplinary institute on data science for intelligent systems and people interaction.
My wife is a behavioral marketing PhD student at Wharton. I am (slowly) learning Korean from her.
My curriculum vitae is available here.
I am broadly interested in statistical learning theory, though most of my recent work has focused on the study and design of prediction algorithms for regression and classification.
- decision tree learning (e.g., random forests, CART)
- neural networks (approximation and statistical properties)
- latent variable models (e.g., mixture models)
I have the privilege of working with the following extremely talented students.
- Peter Tian (Princeton)
- Ryan Theisen (UC, Berkeley)
