I am an Assistant Professor of Big Data in the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science at Simon Fraser University. I am also an Honorary Academic Visitor at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Oxford. My research includes machine learning, genetics, imaging neuroscience, Bayesian nonparametrics, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, deep learning, and procedural generation for games and art.
