David Uminsky

Assistant Professor, Mathematics; Director, Data Science

David's research interests are in applying mathematics to unsupervised machine learning and data clustering methods. He is specifically interested in developing new provably convergent and highly accurate algorithms to perform unsupervised data clustering. He is also the founding director of the Bachelor's program in Data Science at USF, and currently director of the Masters in Analytics program. Before joining USF he was a combined NSF and UC President's Fellow at UCLA. He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Boston University and a B.S. in Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College.
