Chun-An (Joe) Chou
I am an Assistant Professor with the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Northeastern University. Prior to the current position, I held positions in the Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering and the Center of Collective Dynamics of Complex Systems at Binghamton University, the State University of New York, and worked as a Post-Doc Research Associate in the Integrated Brain Imaging Center at University of Washington Medical Center. 
    My research is focused on the development of quantitative tools to discover and/or support scientific findings from which large-scale complex systems (e.g., medical diagnosis, brain disorders, healthcare systems, biological systems, etc.) are studied. Methodologies include mathematical optimization, data mining, machine learning, graph theory, and network science techniques.
