Erik B. Sudderth is Professor of Computer Science and Statistics, and Chancellor's Fellow, at the University of California, Irvine. He directs the UC Irvine Center for Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems, as well as the HPI Research Center in Machine Learning and Data Science at UC Irvine. His research interests include probabilistic graphical models and deep generative models, nonparametric Bayesian methods for weakly supervised learning, variational and Monte Carlo inference, and applications of statistical machine learning in computer vision and the sciences. Erik was previously an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Brown University, and a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. He received the Bachelor's degree (summa cum laude, 1999) in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego, and the Master's degree (2002) and Ph.D. degree (2006) in EECS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received an NSF CAREER award, the ISBA Mitchell Prize, and was named one of "AI's 10 to Watch" by IEEE Intelligent Systems Magazine.
