Faculty Highlight – Prof. Shan Suthaharan

People around the department might be wondering where Dr. Suthaharan was in the Fall. The answer is that he was spending time on the west coast, as a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Statistics at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Suthaharan’s recent work in “Big Data” analysis has attracted a lot of attention lately, including this invitation from Berkeley – ranked as the number two statistics program in the country. Since Dr. Suthaharan’s return he has continued his work in Deep Learning here, providing insight into classifying data in large, high-dimensional data sets.
