I am mostly interested in the theory and practical applications of probabilistic reasoning and decision making, and in their intersection with graph theory. In particular, I am interested in the computational aspects of inference in discrete probabilistic graphical models (e.g., Bayesian networks), and in its use in classification and planning under uncertainty.
