Machine learning is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. It is one of the most exciting areas in computer science that have witnessed tremendous developments in the past few decades. Our work ranges from basic research on various machine learning paradigms to their applications.
This rapidly growing interdisciplinary field merges statistics (and other related mathematics disciplines), machine learning (and other advances in computer science) and domain knowledge to manage and analyze data for supporting human making right decisions in complex circumstances. We are interested in developing statistical learning methods to deal with large and complex data and applying data science methods in real world problems in agriculture, transportation, smart city, etc. and in particular e-health with exploiting electronic medical records.
Computational science is science about using math and computing to do research in other sciences. We work on modelling, simulation and computation methods using high performance computers. We are interested in problems in computational biomedicine, computational linguistics, and computationa environment, among others.
