I am a Ph.D. student and have been using data to find human
patterns as a preventative study to detect early signs of chronic
diseases under the smart home environment. To do this, I have been
applying big data and machine learning technologies to do data analysis
by using Python and R with well-defined methods and algorithms as well
as exploring and developing new methods and algorithms.
project I have been working on is granted by the Department of
Energy and by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Science to
Achieve Results (STAR) program. Our research is about Integrated
Measurements and Modeling Using US Smart Homes
to Assess Climate Change and Human Behaviors Impact on Indoor Air
My most recent work is about Population Modeling. Our study identifies and models the patterns of human daily routines in 74 smart homes with diverse participants, and provides vital information of behavior patterns and detection of deviations that indicate potential health problem. Not only can this lead to more effective medical interventions, but these findings may benefit other fields.
My research interests include smart home, machine learning,
applications for healthcare, and compute science education.

Correction: the selected VOCs, including
acetaldehyde, acetonitrile, methanol, ethanol, acetone, benzene,
toluene, xylenes, styrene, and monoterpenes, were measured continuously
with a proton transfer reaction mass spectrometer (PTR-MS, Ionicon
Analytik, Innsbruck, Austria, Europe).
