If (and only if) you are a current UM undergraduate student
interested in machine learning and pattern recognition, and if you enjoy
and have strong skills in mathematics (probability and linear algebra are
most relevant), please contact me about directed research during the
semester or summer. Please give your email the subject "UM Undergrad
Interested in Statistical Machine Learning."
If you are a prospective Ph.D. student who is
interested in working with me, please read the following.
- I look for students with strong interest and ability in developing
novel machine learning algorithms and proving theoretical guarantees for
such algorithms. My students typically study and apply advanced linear
algebra, multivariate statistics, convex optimization, measure-theoretic
probability, functional analysis, and various other topics in
pure and applied mathematics. My students can also expect to gain
experience working with real-world data in the context of a particular
- Before emailing me, you should have submitted a complete application
to the ECE program (although I would also consider strong
candidates who have applied to other programs such as Statistics or
- Please do not email me if you have not already applied to
Michigan. In your email, please indicate to which progam you have applied
(e.g., ECE, CSE, Statistics), and also please explain why you are
interested in machine learning.
- To indicate that you have actually taken the time to read this,
please give your email the subject "Statistical Machine Learning." I will
read all emails with this subject. Thanks!
