Mission

The Pattern Analysis Laboratory provides state-of-the-art techniques for analyzing scientific data. The laboratory evolved in response to the massive amounts of data about our solar system and the entire universe captured by various sensor devices. Processing and analyzing this voluminous data requires algorithms that identify meaningful patterns efficiently. The lab conducts research at the intersection of machine learning, statistics, data mining, physics, and natural sciences.
