Samory Kpotufe works in machine learning, with an emphasis on nonparametric methods and high-dimensional statistics. Kpotufe’s work aims to yield insights on the inherent difficulty of high-dimensional problems under practical constraints arising in real-world application domains. Such understanding leads to improved procedures that can adapt to structural aspects of data.
