I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard University, and a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Fairfield University. Prior to that, I was a Research Fellow at Harvard University and Postdoc Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis. I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Center of Artificial Intelligence (CAI) at the University of Technology Sydney and Washington University in St. Louis (Visiting Ph.D.).
My research areas include data mining, machine learning and health informatics. My research focuses on developing machine learning algorithms to analyze complex data, ranging from clinical data, time series data, biological data, to large-scale networks. I have been applying my research to real-world applications, including large-scale optimization for social network analysis and computational approaches for bioinformatics. A new surge of my current and future research interests includes developing network representation learning algorithms for biological networks and combining machine learning with decision-making for healthcare.
