My research concerns extracting models of high dimensional date which reveal of the essential information in the data.
Specific contributions include the derivation of sampling theorems in compressed sensing using techniques from
stochastic geometry, the design and analysis of efficient algorithms for matrix completion which minimise
over higher dimensional subspaces as the reliability of the data
warrants, and theoretical understanding of deep neural networks.
Recent interests include how to initialize very deep neural
networks so as to retain desierable geometric and information
theoretic properties, as well as how to prune deep nets.
