Paramveer Dhillon

I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the Initiative on Digital Economy @ MIT sponsored by Prof. Sinan Aral.

My research broadly involves making careful empirical measurements (both causal and predictive) from big data and draws on ideas from Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Econometrics & Social Sciences.

I hold an A.M. in Statistics and M.S.E & Ph.D. in Computer & Information Science (CIS), all from the University of Pennsylvania. My doctoral dissertation won the Morris & Dorothy Rubinoff Best Dissertation Award. My doctoral work, which was on statistical Machine Learning & Natural Language Processing (NLP), proposed simple linear spectral learning methods that give accuracies comparable to or better than state-of-the-art "deep-learning" algorithms on text data and has been published in top tier journals/conferences.
