Jason D. Lee
USC PhD students interested in my research, feel free to contact me.
I am an assistant professor in the Data Sciences and Operations department at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business.
I was a postdoc at UC Berkeley working with Michael Jordan. Before that, I was a PhD student in Applied Math advised by Trevor Hastie and Jonathan Taylor from the Statistics department. I received a BS in Mathematics from Duke University advised by Mauro Maggioni.
I am a native of Cupertino, CA and attended Lynbrook High School.
My current interests are in high-dimensional statistics, machine learning, and optimization. Lately, I have worked on high dimensional statistical inference, analysis of non-convex optimization algorithms, and fast algorithms for matrix factorization and non-smooth optimization.
