I am an Associate Professor at Rutgers Business School. I received my Ph.D. in statistics from Purdue University and a B.S. in Computer Science from University of Science and Technology of China. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute and National Institute of Statistical Sciences (2003—2004). I was an Assistant Professor at University of Cincinnati from 2004 to 2008, and Associate Professor from 2008-2009.

 


Research

 

The 1st Workshop for Designing Machine Learning Platforms for Big Data

DIMACS Workshop on Statistical Analysis of Network Dynamics and Interactions


My research interests
have focused on two major areas. The first is statistical machine learning and data mining, where I have concentrated on developing tools for analyzing high dimensional data with complex covariance structures, in particular, efficient structural regularization techniques for both independent and time dependent data models, and more flexible statistical methods for analyzing biological and brain networks. My second research area is on privacy protection in data processing, sharing and mining, where I am currently developing decision theory framework that guides the evaluation of risk and utility tradeoffs. I am also working on probabilistic models for solving the learning with error (LWE) problem.
