Guy Bresler

Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Guy Bresler is an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a principal investigator at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society’s Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems and Statistics and Data Science Center. Bresler’s research is at the interface of information theory, statistics, theoretical computer science, and applied probability. He looks for insights into practically relevant problems by formulating and solving mathematical models. As part of this, he wants to understand the relationship between combinatorial structure and computational tractability of high-dimensional inference in graphical models and other statistical models. Bresler earned an undergraduate degree in electrical and computer engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and a PhD at the University of California, Berkeley.
