Claire Donnat

Assistant Professor
Department of Statistics and the College


My research is at the intersection between Statistics and Machine Learning, and has focused on the statistical analysis of graphs and networks. I am especially interested in applying these methods to the analysis of biomedical data, and in particular, to neuroscience and brain connectomics.

Prior to coming to Chicago, I graduated from Ecole Polytechnique with an M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics in 2015, and with a PhD in Statistics from Stanford in 2020, where I was advised by Prof. Susan Holmes.
