My general research interests lie at the intersection of computation, statistics and materials science. Most recently, I've been using Bayesian Optimization techniques to strategically design experiments in order to achieve some objective. I am also interested in how to elicit and represent scientific knowledge - building the bridge between scientist and machine learning techniques.
