I am a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. My area of interests include: Statistical machine learning and data mining, semi-parametric models, survival analysis, and their applications. We were awarded to run a NSF supported Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). Our NSF supported REU Site at UNCW aims to provide undergraduate participants interdisciplinary research experience in statistical learning and data mining with applications in computer vision and pattern recognition. The program is designed to involve students in complete undergraduate research experiences to develop deep data analytics skills, including statistical theory, data management, statistical learning and data mining techniques, computation, statistical practice, and systematically develop professional expertise, such as scientific communication skills, for graduate school or future career in statistics and data science.
