machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computational neuroscience My research group studies machine learning and its application to science and industry, including in particular using the tools of artificial intelligence to understand biological intelligence and other complex processes. I am a Professor of Statistics at Columbia University and an investigator at the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. Prior to Columbia I was a research fellow in the Machine Learning Group at Cambridge. I have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Stanford and an undergraduate degree in computer science from Dartmouth. I have also worked with and advised a number of companies.
