PITTSBURGH, PA — As with many things in the lives of doctoral researchers, defending their Ph.D. theses has gone virtual during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prospective Ph.D.s presented their research and fielded questions from a thesis committee before receiving their degrees this spring.
Earning a Ph.D. is no easy task, and for our researchers it has required continuous hard-work in their field of specialty.
Therefore, the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University would like to congratulate the following doctoral researchers on successfully defending their dissertations:
Thesis: Probabilistic Single Cell Lineage Tracing
Thesis: Towards Efficient Automated Machine Learning
Thesis: Towards a Unified Framework for Learning and Reasoning
Thesis: Learning Collections of Functions
Thesis: Structured Sparse Regression Methods for Learning from High-Dimensional Genomic Data
Thesis: Data Decomposition for Constrained Visual Learning
Thesis: Provable, Structured, and Efficient Methods for Robustness of Deep Networks to Adversarial Examples
Hyun Ah Song
Thesis: Reconstructing and Mining Signals: Algorithms and Applications
Thesis: Change modeling for Understanding Our World and the Counterfactual One(s)
Thesis: Machine Learning in High-Stakes Settings: Risks and Opportunities
We are looking forward to what our doctors will do in their respective fields. Once again, congratulations!
