Prospective students and postdocs:

If you are interested in joining my research lab, either working on a small project, a Ph.D. thesis, or a postdoctoral project, please read this information.

I enjoy working with students and collaborators who have an enthusiastic curiosity for mathematics and algorithms and their applications in machine learning and signal processing. Our work will draw on tools from probability, linear algebra, and functional analysis as well as contemporary mathematics. You must also demonstrate independent thinking, patience, and integrity. For students already at Michigan, both graduate and undergraduate: Please email me with your CV and the types of projects you’d be interested in, and we can set up a time to meet during my office hours. For prospective graduate students: Please start by applying to the ECE Michigan graduate program. Include my name in your research statement along with reasons why you’d be interested in working with me. For prospective postdocs: Please email me with your CV and a research statement, and highlight our shared interests and potential collaborative projects.

Please make your email subject line “Joining the Balzano lab” to show me you have read this. I will do my best to respond as soon as I can. Since I am busy taking care of my current students, it may take a few weeks before I find the time, so I encourage your patience. You will appreciate these priorities if you end up at Michigan. Best of luck to you in your search for a research mentor.
