Machine learning research profile

Short bio: born in California (1984), Bachelors at UC Berkeley (2006), PhD in Paris (Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan 2012), Postdoc at Tokyo Tech (2013). Since 2014 I have been working on new machine learning models for genomic data, as a post-doctoral researcher with Guillaume Bourque at the genome center of McGill University in Montreal.

Research topics: fast and accurate algorithms for convex optimization (clustering, regression, ranking, classification) and discrete optimization (changepoint detection, dynamic programming). The main application domain for the algorithms I develop are in genomic data analysis (DNA copy number, ChIP-seq, etc). For more info, see my Google scholar profile and my list of reproducible papers with accompanying source code.

Free/open-source software: I have written several free/open-source R/Python/C/C++/JavaScript packages, available on GitHub, R-Forge, PyPI, and CRAN. I have been helping as co-administrator and mentor in the R project's participation in Google Summer of Code since 2012.
