Since September 2016, Cindy Rush has been an assistant professor in the Department of Statistics at Columbia University. In May 2016, Cindy received her PhD in statistics from Yale University, under the supervision of Andrew Barron. She completed her undergraduate coursework at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she obtained her BS in mathematics.
Her research uses tools and ideas from information theory, statistical physics, and applied probability as a framework for understanding modern, high-dimensional inference and estimation problems and complex machine learning tasks that are core challenges in the fields of current statistics and data science.
