Research Interests

My research interests focus on developing efficient methodologies and algorithms for modeling and monitoring industrial systems with high-dimensional, heterogeneous data. My research lies at the intersection of statistics, optimization, and computational science and can be categorized into the following areas:

    1. Modeling processes with heterogeneous tensorial data: Develop scalable and computationally efficient algorithms for modeling and analysis of processes with heterogeneous forms of data, such as images, profiles, and scalars.
    2. Modeling and monitoring dynamic stream of networks: Develop methodologies for data-driven modeling of temporal behavior and connectivity structure of a system with large-number of connected components.
    3. Adaptive system modeling and data fusion: Develop methodologies for adaptive modeling of a system by integrating available low-fidelity data and real-time, intelligently-acquired high-fidelity data.
