Nick Foti’s research focused on the development of Bayesian nonparametric statistical methods applied to machine learning. In particular, he develops models and scalable inference algorithms applicable to data arising from various dynamic complex phenomena including finance, genomics, and neuroscience, among others.
As a joint UWIN and eScience WRF Postdoctoral Fellow, he developed statistical models to learn the effective connections between the auditory sensory areas of the brain and the attentional network from high-dimensional time series of magnetoencepholography (MEG) recordings.
