Department of Computer Science and Engineering
University of California, San Diego
I am a faculty member in the Artificial Intelligence Group at UC San Diego. My primary area of research is machine learning.
I grew up in southern California but spent twenty years in exile on the East Coast. Here is a brief timeline of that odyssey:
Within the CSE department at UCSD, I have served in recent years as the Chair of the Graduate Committee and as the Vice Chair of Academic Personnel. However, I am doing my best to ascend no further in the echelons of administration.
Beyond campus, I served previously as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Machine Learning Research and as the Program Chair and General Chair of the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems.
