If I have undergrad research opportunities I will post them here or as SROP/SURE opportunities.
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 application. If this appeals to you, please submit an application to the ECE program and indicate me as a faculty of interest. Please do not email me as that will not help.
If you are a current UM masters student looking to transition to the PhD program, please contact me during the first half of January as this is the time when I am considering new students. Please include an unofficial transcript and resume.
If you would like to request a letter of recommendation for the usual winter application period, please do so no later than November 1st. Thank you. I may not be able to accommodate requests received after this time period. Also, please use interfolio or a similar service so that I only have to upload one letter. I do not have time to submit individual letters to every school, since I usually write several letters per year. Thanks!
