I am a research scientist in the Laboratory for Computational Physiology (LCP) at the MIT Institute for Medical Engineering & Science (IMES). My research focuses on the use of machine learning techniques to derive insights from physiological and clical data for informed treatment decision making. My interests include representation learning, structure discovery, generative probabilistic models, switching state-space models, Bayesian non-parametric learning of disease phenotypes, and, more recently, off-policy reinforcement learning. I received my Master’s degree in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology, and my Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June 2005.
Research/Post-doc position available: I am looking for a highly-motivated post-doc to join my research team.
