John D. Lafferty
I am a professor at the University of Chicago, with a joint appointment in Statistics (primary) and Computer Science, and a faculty member of the College of the University of Chicago. I am also an Adjoint Professor at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. Prior to joining the University of Chicago in 2011, I was Professor of Computer Science, Machine Learning, and Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University.
My research is in statistics and machine learning, with a focus on computational and statistical aspects of nonparametric methods, high-dimensional data, graphical models, document and text analysis. I'm part of the Computational and Applied Mathematics Initiative (CAMI) at the University of Chicago. Short NSF-style biographical sketch.
