Biography I earned my PhD in machine learning at Royal Holloway, University of London and at AT&T Research in Red Bank, NJ (advisors: Alex Gammerman, Volodya Vovk and Vladimir Vapnik) in 2000. From 2000 to 2001, I was a researcher at Biowulf technologies. From 2002 to 2003 I was a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tuebingen, Germany. From 2003 to 2009 I was a research staff member at NEC Labs America, Princeton. From 2009 to 2014 I was a research scientist at Google, NY. [see full bio]
