Biography
Dr. Cloninger received his Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of Maryland.Following his graduation, he received the NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship which he chose to spend at Yale, working with Ronald Coifman and others in the Applied Mathematics Program. Dr. Cloninger?s main area of research are in the mathematical foundations of Data Science using tools from harmonic analysius, spectral theory, functional analysis, numerical analysis, statistics, optimization, and computer science.He has substantially improved our mathematical understanding of data science techniques such as deep learning, and has emerged as one of the most exciting young researchers working in this area.Dr. Cloninger has taught courses at Maryland and Yale at all undergraduate levels and has contributed to diversity, equity an inclusion efforts thoroughout his academic career.
