My name is John Lipor and I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Michigan in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department.

Beginning January 2018, I will be an Assistant Professor at Portland State University in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.

My research interests include active learning, constrained clustering, and low-rank models, especially as applied to environmental problems. For a list of my publications, see below or check out my Google Scholar Profile.

You can reach me at lipor@umich.edu or drop by my desk in EECS 4303.
