The crudest curriculum vitae crows and flaps its wings in a style
peculiar to the undersigner.
I doubt whether you can even give your telephone
number without giving something of yourself.

- I will not be able to take on or co-advise PhD students admitted in 2018 (i.e., applying this fall). This is NOT because I am leaving! (Industry hired away all the best "Lees"/"Lis" already anyway...) The reason is to allow me to attempt to give the time and attention they deserve to my current PhD students.
I know this means that I am missing out on the opportunity to work with some fantastic people, but I can't simultaneously do that and also spend the time I want/have committed to spend with my Cornell student-colleagues.
There is a very small chance I might be able to undertake research with a current Cornell undergraduate during the 2017-2018 academic year. (I do not have spots available for undergraduates at other institutions.) If interested, send me an email that includes a complete transcript (unofficial is fine). Prerequisites are some background in machine learning and to have programming experience at least at the level of CS3110.

Go to my office-hours youcanbook.me page and read the instructions there carefully. (Yes, while classes are held, I do have regular office hours! But I'm using this appointment system rather than drop-in so that everyone gets individual time. I generally have at least two hours every "regular" week, so if you see little or no available time, that probably means other people booked the timeslots first. Have no fear, the instructions tell you what to do if there aren't available times.)
