I am a Professor of Computer Science, Mathematics and Data Science. Currently, I am the Director of NYU's Center for Data Science. Please see my CV for more details.
Prospective MSDS Independent Study Students: I usually work with students that are known to me through the capstone course or other teaching. That said if you feel there is an exceptional match in research interests (mainly theory of machine learning and its connection to the sciences (especially physics)), please email me. Please do not apply if you want to work on quantum computing.
Prospective PhD Students: Applications for Ph.D. program are reviewed by a center-wide committee and are very competitive. Please apply directly to the PhD Program of the Center for Data Science. Do not forget to mention my name (and of other faculty you'd like to work with) in the application AND in your research statement.
