Evan Archer

Position: PhD Student  Unit: 

I'm a graduate student researcher, working on problems at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, and computational neuroscience. I received a master's degree in applied mathematics and bachelors in electrical engineering, both from The University of Texas at Austin. You can find out more abut me at my website.
