Mike Hughes - Machine Learning Research

Welcome! My research spans statistical machine learning and its applications in healthcare and the sciences.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at Tufts University and a primary faculty member for the Tufts Machine Learning research group. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow in computer science at Harvard SEAS, advised by Prof. Finale Doshi-Velez. I did my Ph.D. in CS at Brown University in May 2016, advised by Prof. Erik Sudderth (now at UC-Irvine).

Research Highlights

My lab pursues advances to core machine learning methods as well as high-impact applications.

First, I'm interested in fundamental problems in statistical machine learning:

Second, I'm interested in several exciting clinical applications of these techniques:
