- Subramani Mani joined DSL lab. Dr. Mani holds a Ph.D. from the Intelligent Systems Studies Program of the University of Pittsburgh and specializes in Computational Causal Discovery and other Machine Learning methods. He will be working on new methods development as well as working with biomedical researchers on campus for solving real life modeling and data analysis problems using cutting edge DSL and broader Machine Learning methods and software. Welcome Dr Mani!
