Peter Orbanz

Welcome.

I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Columbia University. My main research interest are the statistics of discrete objects and structures: permutations, graphs, partitions, binary sequences. Most of my recent work concerns representation problems and latent variable algorithms in Bayesian nonparametrics. More generally, I am interested in all mathematical aspects of machine learning and artifical intelligence.

I was a student of Joachim M. Buhmann at ETH Zurich and a Research Fellow in the Machine Learning Group of Zoubin Ghahramani at the University of Cambridge.
