Special CMX Seminar

Matthew Thorpe, Postdoctoral Associate, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Carnegie Mellon University,
Speaker's Bio:
Matthew is a research fellow in the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information. His research interests are in discrete-to-continuum limits in graphical problems, particularly variational problems that arise from applications in machine learning, and optimal transport distances and their applications to signal and image analysis. Before joining Cambridge Matthew was a postdoctoral associate at Carnegie Mellon University working with Dejan SlepĨev on optimal transport problems (NSF grant number 1421502). Prior to that Matthew was a PhD student in the maths and statistics doctoral training centre (MASDOC) at Warwick under the supervision of Florian Theil and Adam Johansen. The focus of the PhD was on applying variational methods to statistical inference problems.
