My research focuses on statistical methodology for multivariate data. I’m interested in time series, functional data, covariance modeling, dimension reduction, etc. My dissertation work addressed challenges arising in Bayesian analyses of statistical models with orthogonal matrix parameters, including computation and prior specification, and other topics related to random orthogonal matrices.

My research is on models, algorithms, and complexity results for problems arising in network science and data mining. A recent focus of my research has been the design and implementation of algorithms for graph clustering and hypergraph clustering. More broadly, I'm interested in mathematical foundations of data science. Projects I work on tend to combine aspects of graph theory, mathematical optimization, numerical linear algebra, machine learning, and theoretical computer science.
