Our paper “Oracle Inequalities for High-dimensional Prediction” has been accepted for publication in the Bernoulli journal. Find an updated version here. Congratulations to Lu Yu, then Master’s student at UW and now PhD student at University of Toronto, and Irina Gaynanova, Assistant Professor at Texas A&M.
We have uploaded a new paper that contains theoretical insights about our TREX here on arXiv. Thanks to my collaborators Jacob, Irina, and Christian!
We have three talks coming up to bring some of our team members closer to their educational goals.

Come if you can.
Rui has received the “Senior Post Award” at this year’s biostats retreat. The project can be found here. Congratulations, Rui!
We have uploaded a paper titled “Maximum Regularized Likelihood Estimators: A General Prediction Theory and Applications” here on arXiv. We discuss “slow” rates for MRLEs in a wide range of settings. Cool stuff, Rui! ✌
