Research Statement

I work on three areas: (i) Applied machine learning in healthcare: I am interested in improving healthcare using data-driven learning and decision models. (ii) Graphical models and message-passing algorithms: I work on random graph models and methods motivated from statistical physics, with applications in statistical inference. (iii) Mathematics of learning and decision-making: I develop mathematical models and algorithms for problems that involve experimentation, learning, and personalized decision-making.
