Areas of Research:
My current academic interests include data mining, text mining, machine learning, and data visualization, specifically on how DM and TM can help analyze sociotechnical data such as medical data, publication data, or geographical data, etc; how to apply different ML algorithms to different projects and invent new ones; and how to better visualize and story tell the data.
