I am currently a PhD student in the Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department in the School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. My research focuses on information theoretic approaches to model selection and model search.
Prior to this, I spent considerable time as a data scientist / engineer at Yahoo! (Search and Labs), working on a number of machine learning problems in the area of natural language processing and advertising, which resulted in three granted patents.
I hold a Bachelor's of Science degree in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master's of Science degree in CS from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
