I am currently a postdoc and adjunct assistant professor in the Columbia Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering. I will be joining the computer science department at UT Dallas in the spring of 2015 as an assistant professor.

I am broadly interested in combinatorial optimization, large-scale graphical models, approximate counting and inference, and belief propagation style (e.g., min-sum, sum-product, etc.) message-passing algorithms. For more details, see my publications page and CV.

Teaching:

Spring 2015: CS 6301, Statistical Methods in AI and ML at UTD

Fall 2013: CSOR W4246, Algorithms for Data Science at Columbia University

Office Hours: By appointment.
