Dougal J. Sutherland
I'm a second-year PhD student in the Computer Science Department, working with Jeff Schneider. I've mostly worked on machine learning techniques that use groups of data rather than single feature vectors as the unit of interest. The primary applications I've been focusing on are using these techniques to help understand the results of large-scale scientific simulations, and in image classification. I'm also working on active learning techniques in low-rank matrix factorization models.
I did my undergraduate work at Swarthmore College in CS, linguistics, and math.
