Research Interests

My research interests include information theory, statistics, machine learning, and signal processing. I am particularly interested in fundamental questions concerning the amount of data needed for an inference or learning task, the representation of uncertainty in high-dimensional and complex spaces, and the gap between practical and combinatorial methods. My approach to research is highly interdisciplinary and builds upon ideas from engineering, statistics, mathematics, theoretical computer science, and statistical physics.


Short Bio

Galen Reeves joined the faculty at Duke University in Fall 2013, and is currently an Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Department of Electrical Computer Engineering and the Department of Statistical Science. He completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley in 2011, and he was a postdoctoral associate in the Departments of Statistics at Stanford University from 2011 to 2013. His research interests include information theory and high-dimensional statistics. He received the NSF CAREER award in 2017.
