Bio

I am both the author of The Data Industry: The Business and Economics of Information and Big Data (John Wiley & Sons, 2016) and Data Capital: How Data is Reinventing Capital for Globalization (Springer International Publishing AG, TBA). I am a research associate in medicine at Harvard Medical School, and serves as the Founder President of the Harvard Data Entrepreneurship Club.

My work begins with a data-mining method innovation to various fields (e.g., finance, economics, insurance, bioinformatics, and sociology) from my doctoral work. Then, I endeavored to better match data product and its marketing capability by tackling business innovation. Inspired by business, I implemented a theoretical innovation for Data Science to propose the (now-mainstream) definition of the data industry in 2013. Data industry aims to bridge the gap between data science and economics. Currently, I very focuse applied innovation in healthcare, and believe precision medicine is an application of the data industry.
