We are always interested in hearing from MS/PhD and PhD students who would like to join the lab. The desired educational background includes calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, artificial intelligence, algorithms, and programming. Prior experience with machine learning, numerical optimization or Bayesian statistics is a plus. Relevant prior research experience is highly valued. Candidates should apply directly to the College of Information and Computer Sciences and should clearly indicate their interest in the MLDS lab in their personal statement. Information about the UMass CS graduate program is available here.
