From medicine, for medicine.

Hau-tieng Wu, M.D., Ph.D. (吳浩榳)

I am now an associate professor in Mathematics department at Duke University with a joint appointment in the Department of Statistical Science.

I am also an adjunct associate professor in Mathematics department at University of Toronto, starting from July 1, 2017. 
I am from Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

*** Look for students (all levels) from math, medicine, statistics, CS, EE, etc,
who are interested in developing modern medical AI systems based on mathematical and 
medical knowledge.

Research Interest (To be updated ....coming soon)

My research interests range from mathematical study to data analysis -- I focus on analyzing big/massive datasets by applying proper mathematical tools/theorems. More specifically I have being working on, and will continue to be interested in the following topics:
  • the analysis of massive datasets by applying differential geometry and algebraic topology;
  • the analysis of time series by applying harmonic analysis and random process;
  • the probabilistic and statistical analysis of the applied methods; 
  • the mathematical foundation of the applied methods.
My main application field is medicine. In the medical field I work on the following problems: anesthesia/sedation/sleep analysis based on different physiological signals, breathing/heart rate variation analysis and coupling effect, weaning prediction, ECG waveform analysis like fetal ECG analysis and f-wave analysis, seasonality analysis of diseases, etc. I also put effort into bio-medical imaging analysis.
