Dr. Jeremias Sulam receives NSF CAREER Award

Dr. Jeremias Sulam, assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, has been named a recipient of the National Science Foundation‘s Early CAREER Award, which recognizes early-stage scholars with high levels of promise and excellence.

Jeremias’ award project, titled “Interpretable and Robust Machine Learning Models: Analysis and Algorithms,” aims to develop a general framework to interpret complex predictors in a robust and certifiable manner. The brittleness and lack of interpretability of recent deep models can often compromise the safe deployment of machine learning tools in sensitive domains, such as medical imaging. This project will develop algorithms to alleviate these shortcomings.

This award will support his research and career development.
