I am fascinated with automatically building actionable models from data. I use methods and algorithms from machine learning, graphical models, Bayesian networks, statistics, decision analysis, pattern recognition, and artificial intelligence. Besides making contributions to Bayesian Networks learning and classifiers, I have applied these extensively to the automated diagnosis, forecasting, and control of performance problems, faults, and power in large networked computer systems. I have recently shifted some of my attention to modeling certain aspects of social networks.

I joined the MSR Silicon Valley Lab in early 2006. Prior to Microsoft, I was at Hewlett-Packard Labs, SRI International, and Rockwell Science Center, and I was a principal scientist with Peakstone Corporation (start-up). I earned my PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of California in Los Angeles (1992).
