I currently work as an Assistant Research Scientist at Indiana University Network Science Institute. My research concerns mathematical theories and models of networks, representation and statistical learning of relational data as well as scientific reproducibility. At IUNI, our cross-disciplinary collaborations aim to put these theories and models in action. With Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory, we are applying stochastic block model to detecting meaningful brain structures and using dynamical processes on networks to analyze signals from brain imaging data. With The Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research (CNetS) and Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center, we are studying scholarly networks in conjunction with other data sets to represent and model scientific activities. We recently received a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to develop, seed, and maintain a cloud-based, extendable cyber-infrastructure for sharing large academic library data resources. We now call the platform CADRE, please checkout our project website for more information.
I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Information Sciences Institute of University of Southern California. Before that, I was a graduate fellow at Santa Fe Institute. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of New Mexico. I am on the job market for the academic year 2021. Please feels free to contact me for more information.
