Daniel Hsu | Information for prospective students

Interested in applying to a computer science program at Columbia?

Please see the CS department's webpage on admissions. There, you'll find information about all aspects of the application process (e.g., deadlines, your chances of being admitted), as well as information about the academic programs themselves.

You may also be interested in academic opportunities through the Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering, as well as the NSF IGERT program "From Data to Solutions".

If you are interested in working with me, you can mention this in your application (and also see the section below); this ensures that I (and others) will review your file. Unfortunately, I do not generally have time to reply to inquiries from prospective students.

Interested in working with me?

I work on algorithmic statistics and machine learning, with emphases on probabilistic models (especially latent variable models), interactive learning (e.g., active learning, online learning), and privacy-preserving data analysis. My recent papers can provide some examples of these topics.

If you are a current (or already admitted) Columbia student, please feel free to contact me via e-mail (or drop by my office) if you are interested in discussing a project with me.
