I'm Patrick Perry, an Assistant Professor of Statistics in the IOMS Department at NYU Stern. I completed my undergraduate and graduate work at Stanford University, obtaining a B.S. in Mathematics in 2003, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering in 2004, and a Ph.D. in Statistics in 2009. For my dissertation I worked with Art Owen, studying applications of cross-validation to unsupervised learning. Between 2009 and 2011 I worked with Patrick Wolfe as a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard University.
My research is primarily in modern multivariate statistics. Specifically, it focuses on inference for network data and other emerging data sources, high-dimensional data analysis, and random matrix theory. I'm also interested in data visualization and statistical computing.
