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 Analysis (ICA).

Selected publications on high-dimensional robust linear regression:

Here are some slides from talks I have given:
