Clint P. George


I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics and Computer Science at IIT Goa. I was previously a postdoc at the Informatics Institute and Department of Statistics, University of Florida with Dr. George Michailidis. I received Ph.D. and M.S. from the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering, University of Florida. Dr. Joseph N. Wilson (CS) and Dr. Hani Doss (Stats) were my Ph.D. advisers. I completed B. Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering from the College of Engineering Thiruvananthapuram.

I work in the area of machine learning and applied statistics, which includes

  • Topic models
  • Empirical Bayes methods
  • Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) and variational inference methods
  • Cancer genomics

During my Ph.D., I collaborated with the UF Data Science Research Lab, Dr. Daisy Wang (CS), and Dr. Bill Hamilton (Law), for the UF Law E-Discovery and SurveyMonkey datamining projects.
