Henry-Louis is a PhD student in Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. Prior to starting his PhD in 2015, he studied at Wesleyan University, Connecticut, USA, for his Bachelor, and at the University of Cambridge where he completed Part III of the mathematical tripos.

Research interests

Henry-Louis is interested in Diffusion Maps, a way to perform non-linear dimension reduction on high-dimensional data sets. More generally, he is interested in developing techniques to extract geometric features of data sets. He is also working on Topological Data Analysis, and hopes to better understand how techniques from the former can be applied to the latter, and vice versa.
