Research

I build probabilistic models that enable large-scale hypothesis testing with a minimum of human oversight. By working towards automated interventions, my tools will make new experiment designs possible from what once were observational studies.

Broadly, I work on interpretable machine learning and vision with focus on behavior analysis, multi-object tracking, Bayesian nonparametrics applied to time-series, distributions on manifolds, and using uncertainty to guide decision making, analysis, and experiment design.
