Peter Orbanz


I am Associate Professor in the Department of Statistics at Columbia University. I study network and relational data, Bayesian nonparametrics, asymptotics and ergodicity of random structures, and hierarchies of latent variables. More generally, I am interested in all mathematical aspects of machine learning and artifical intelligence.

I was an undergraduate at the University of Bonn, a PhD student of Joachim M. Buhmann at ETH Zurich, and a postdoc of Zoubin Ghahramani at the University of Cambridge.

Spring '19: I am on leave to visit the Microsoft Research New England theory group.
