Machine Learning: Science and Technology

Editorial board


Kyle Cranmer, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
Particle physics, machine learning, statistics, open science, cyberinfrastructure, and science communication.

Kyle Cranmer is a Professor of Physics, Statistics, and Computer Science and the Director of the Data Science Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Previously, he was a Professor of Physics and Data Science at New York University. Professor Cranmer obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005 and his B.A. in Mathematics and Physics from Rice University. He was awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Science and Engineering in 2007, the National Science Foundation’s Career Award in 2009, and became a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2021 for his work at the Large Hadron Collider. Professor Cranmer developed a framework that enables collaborative statistical modeling, which was used extensively for the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012. His current interests are at the intersection of physics, statistics, and machine learning.
