Julian Yarkony

Greetings, I am Dr. Julian Yarkony. I finished a PhD in computer science at the Univesity of California Irvine in July 2012. I studied under Dr. Charless Fowlkes and collaborated heavily with Dr. Alexander Ihler. I completed a post-doc with B.S. Manjunath during August 2012-October 2013. I also completed a post-doc at the university of Heidelberg/University of California Irvine under Fred Hamprecht and Pierre Baldi while working in Germany. Currently I am a data scientist at Experian though I am still an active academic. My work historically concerns MAP inference in Markov random fields/correlation clustering with applications to computer vision. My current work is all deep learning all the time (with lots of novel algorithms and math). My erdos number is 3.
