M. Clara De Paolis Kaluza [CV]


I'm a PhD student at Northeastern University's College of Computer and Information Science. My research interests are in machine learning, computer vision, and optimization. I am particularly interested in large and complex sets of high-dimensional data whose structure can be exploited to improve learning. I've worked on applications in computer vision, medical image processing, graphical models to model environmental contamination, and projects on network behavior in computational biology and in economics.
