Title: Structured Estimation in High-Dimensions Abstract: Modern techniques in data accumulation and sensing have led to an explosion in the complexity of data. Many of the resulting estimation problems are high-dimensional, meaning that the number of parameters to estimate can be far greater than the number of examples. A major focus of my work has been developing an understanding of how hidden low-complexity structure in large datasets can be used to develop computationally efficient estimation methods with strong statistical guarantees. I will discuss a variety of problems including... Read more about StochStatMIT: Sahand N. Negahban
