Research Interests

My research interests are in the areas of machine learning, deep learning, data mining, big data, evolutionary computation and their applications in bioinformatics, material informatics, and health informatics. Our research has been sponsored by NSF, NIH, Nvidia, and the South Carolina Department of Transportation. Currently, our major research focus is developing deep learning algotrithms for solving challenging application problems such as: 

  • Intelligent audio/sound processing
  • Data-driven material discovery
  • Disease diagnosis and prediction, medical image analysis
  • Bioinformatics: protein-peptide binding prediction for drug design, and protein design
  • Big data driven predictive analytics for healthcare
  • Fault diagnosis, text mining, and intelligent transportation

Bio: I joined CSE department of the University of South Carolina in August 2007. I am now working on deep learning, data mining and their applications in audio processing, material informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics.  I got my Ph.D. in Computer Science in the area of machine learning and particularly evolutionary computation at the Genetic Algorithm Research and Application Group (GARAGe) of Michigan State University. My dissertation focuses on sustainable evolutionary computation algorithms and automated computational synthesis. I have worked as Postdoc at  Purdue University Computational Molecular Biology Division at the University of Southern California.
