Research topic: Machine Learning

Research methods: Graphical models, structured prediction, convex optimization, deep learning

Projects in the lab include:

  1. Developing algorithms for automatic understanding of natural language. These machine learning models are trained on large volumes of data, and involve many linguistic and algorithmic challenges.
  2. Developing algorithms for modeling large collections of variables (e.g., pixels in an image, activity of neurons in the cortex) using graphical models.
  3. Developing architectures and algorithms for extracting useful and comptact representations of complex data (e.g., text and images).
