Currently, I am a Ph.D student in the department of computer science at Brown University working with Erik Sudderth. My interests lie in the development of probabilistic graphical models to help discover hidden structures within complex datasets such as documents, images, biological data, and more. The unique problems associated with each dataset motivates the need to develop new and interesting models that can best represent these latent structures.
I'm also quite interested in spreading the beauty and usefulness of these tools to the wider public. I've been working on developing intuitive visualizations that anyone can use with a little dedication to help better express the results that come from applying these models to interesting datasets. More specifically, much of my work has been with large document corpuses and examples of visualizing these results can be seen here.
