Assistant Professor, Department of Statistics
I’m Joe Blitzstein, an Assistant Professor of Statisticsat Harvard University. I finished my Ph.D. work atStanford University in 2006, advised by the inimitable Persi Diaconis.
My research is a mixture of statistics, probability, and combinatorics. I’m especially interested in graphical models, complex networks, and Monte Carlo algorithms (including both sequential importance sampling and Markov chains).
