Ryan Tibshirani

I am an associate professor in the Department of Statistics and the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University. In the fall of 2011, I was lucky enough to join Carnegie Mellon University as a faculty member. I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics from Stanford University in 2011, under the supervision of Jonathan Taylor. Prior to that, I obtained my B.S. in Mathematics and minor in Computer Science from Stanford University in 2007.

Specific Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in statistics, machine learning, and optimization. More specifically, I am interested in high-dimensional statistics, post-selection inference, nonparametric estimation, convex optimization, and convex geometry. I like to think about problems from different angles: applied, theoretical, and computational. I am also interested in developing methods for epidemiological forecasting, particularly flu forecasting.
