My research, generally speaking, lies at the intersection of computational statistics and probabilistic machine learning. I am broadly interested in these fields, but specifically I am particularly interested in developing novel methodology and theory relating
- Inference Algorithms (e.g., Markov Chain Monte Carlo, Sequential Monte Carlo, and Variational Methods)
- Kernelized Stein Discrepencies
- Deep Generative Models (e.g., Normalizing Flows and Variational Autoencoders)
- Variance Reduction and Unbiased Estimation in Monte Carlo Simulation
