Hi, I'm Miheer Dewaskar

I am a postdoc in the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University, working with David Dunson on developing methods for robust inference in parametric models and non-parametric Bayesian clustering. I obtained my PhD in Statistics and Operations Research from UNC Chapel Hill in 2021, under the direction of Shankar Bhamidi, Amarjit Budhiraja, and Andrew Nobel in which we developed a method for groupwise correlation mining and applied it to the data-integration problem of eQTL analysis in genomics, and asymptotically studied the power-of-choice load-balancing scheme.

Research in Data and Systems science

My research spans a wide range of mathematical topics that include: formal methods in computer science for system verification, queuing theory and stochastic processes, and design of statistical theory and methodology for data analysis. I take a principled approach to solving problems, leveraging mathematical tools like:
