I am an assistant professor of computer science at Amherst College. I also have an appointment as visiting faculty in Computer Science at Brown University. Previously, I spent some fantastic years as a research scientist in the Labs group at Two Sigma.

My research focuses on algorithms for knowledge discovery, data mining, and machine learning. I develop theory and methods to extract the most information from large datasets, as fast as possible and in a statistically sound way. The problems I study include pattern extraction, graph mining, and time series analysis. My algorithms often use concepts from statistical learning theory and sampling.

My Erdős number is 3 (ErdősSuenUpfal → Matteo), and I am a mathematical descendant of Eli Upfal, Eli Shamir (2nd generation), Jacques Hadamard (5th), Siméon Denis Poisson (9th), and Pierre-Simon Laplace (10th).
