My research interests lie primarily in high-dimensional
statistics and ``big data'' settings. In my work, I have explored
the statistical behavior of robust M-estimates of regression in
the linear model in high-dimensions. I have also studied a
high-dimensional signal separation problem called Non-Gaussian
Components Analysis (NGCA), similar to Independent Component
Selected publications on high-dimensional robust linear
Here are some slides from talks I have given:
