Research Interests

My research interests are broadly in computational mathematics, machine learning, computational statistics, numerical analysis and scientific computing. I am particularly interested in model and dimensionality reduction, high-dimensional statistics, recovering dynamical-systems models from data and Monte Carlo and Bayesian methods. Most of my work is driven by applications in physics, chemistry and engineering.
