The algorithms group works on the development of new computational and statistical methods for analyzing large, complex datasets. We are particularly focused on two classes of problems. The first is to learn about patterns in neural behavior from electrophysiological measurements using multi-electrode arrays and cellular imaging. The second is to determine the three-dimensional structure of proteins, protein complexes and cellular organelles from electron microscopy data.
More generally, we work with experimental collaborators in a variety of scientific disciplines to meet challenges that involve a combination of modeling, large-scale simulation, optimization and machine learning.
