Research Interests

Literally everything. My recent projects include statistical privacy (e.g., differential privacy) and its interactions with software security, statistical inference, and numerical optimization. I have also been exploring deep learning algorithms and applications to the physical sciences as well as image processing. I have a particular interest in working with social science data, hence am a collaborator with the U.S. Census Bureau and am serving on the Committee for National Statistics (CNSTAT).


I am looking for PhD applicants, Masters applicants, and Postdocs with skills in applied math, probability, and programming languages.
Postdoc job ad is here.
