Research Interests

My research interests are in developing and analyzing estimation, inference, and optimization tools for structured high-dimensional data problems such as sparse regression, sparse nonparametric models, and low-rank models. I work on developing methods for false discovery rate control in settings where we may have undersampled data or misspecified models, and for scalable optimization techniques for nonconvex problems. I also collaborate on modeling and optimization problems in image reconstruction for medical imaging.
