Dr. Arabshahi's research focuses on recovering hidden hierarchical structures underlying large scale data and leveraging hierarchies to develop accurate models for real world problems. She conducts research on neural programming, topic models, spectral methods and probabilistic graphical models. Arabshahi is currently working on the Learning by Instruction Agent (LIA) project in Dr. Tom Mitchells's lab.

Erika Laing is interested in unraveling the neural representation of language in the human brain, specifically from a network level perspective, and with a special interest in the online integration of linguistic content as it is being heard or read. She is also interested in developing clinical tools for enhancing the identification of language regions and laterality to aid in neurosurgical planning.  She utilizes a mixture of behavioral and neuroimaging methods (MEG/ERP, HDFT, fMRI) to gain insight into the neural underpinnings of language processing, and is excited to begin applying machine learning methods to these data sets to augment this effort.
