RELATED EXPERIENCE:

Research

Research Assistant, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, January 2000 – present.

  • Developed a MATLAB GUI for a DNA genomic sequence prediction program.
  • Developed an algorithm called the support vector machine decision tree for rare event detection in classification and pattern recognition.
  • Developed an efficient recursive update algorithm for least squares support vector machines.
  • Designed a new statistical, self-organizing, learning system that uses the ideas of t-test, efficient leave-one-out cross validation, and VC dimension for both classification and regression tasks, and investigated its performance on remote sensing and Six Sigma datasets.
  • Designed an algorithm for an automated intelligent manufacturing system that consists of a support vector machine and genetic algorithm for Six Sigma applications in manufacturing industries, and compared its performance with traditional Design of Experiment methods.

Presenter, Krannert Graduate School of Management, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, September 23rd, 2003, and October 2nd, 2003.

  • Delivered a presentation titled “Towards Manufacturing Enterprises of the Future: Automated Intelligent Manufacturing System (AIMS)” to several representatives from Eli Lilly on September 23rd, and delivered the same presentation in the Fall 2003 The Dauch Center for the Management of Manufacturing Enterprises Partners’ Meeting on October 2nd.

Presenter, Quantitative Methods Seminar, Krannert Graduate School of Management, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, November 1st, 2002.
