Alexandre Bouchard-Côté

Prospective graduate students: contact me if you are interested in joining my research group and you have a strong background in both mathematics/statistics and computer science. I am generally looking for creative students that have done well in a range of relevant courses (such as probability theory, analysis, stochastic processes, algorithms, machine learning, etc) and that are also proficient at programming. Send me your transcript and cv. Note however that due to a high email volume, I am not always able to respond to all requests.
Prospective postdocs: contact me if you are interested in joining my research group and you are in your final year of a PhD in statistics, computer science, or related fields. Openings may fluctuate depending on the time of the year, amount of self-funding, and research interests. Send me your cv and three of your peer-reviewed publications that you are most proud of and/or think I will be most interested in.
Prospective undergraduate students or interns: unfortunately, I am not taking intern nor undergraduate research students at the moment. However, I may take students with particularly strong programming skills for an NSERC USRA in summer 2018. Contact me in January 2018 if you are interested.
