Abolfazl Safikhani

I am currently a term assistant professor in the department of statistics at Columbia University. I received my PhD from the department of statistics and probability, Michigan State University in 2015, under the supervision of Yimin Xiao and Alla Sikorskii. My main research interests can be characterized in three main fields: (a) high-dimensional statistics: space-time model, change point detection, variable selection; (b) applied probability: Gaussian random fields, covariance estimation, dimension reduction methods; (c) data science: clinical trials, cancer symptom management, demand prediction, smart cities.
