- Data linkage
from multiple sources: developed scalable algorithms to integrate large datasets
from multiple sources. The application has been used as π (Probabilistic Integrator) by Connecticut Health Information Network (CHIN), UConn Health Center.
Miner: developed new prediction filters to improve the accuracy of the web-based protein minimotif
search engine (http://mnm.engr.uconn.edu).
Combined individual filters using linear regress, SVM, and neural network and received significant accuracy improvement. (Please also see Dr Martin R. Schiller)
algorithms for out-of-core selection: developed external memory algorithms
for selection on parallel disk model and proposed two-pass algorithms.

Research Group with Dr. Zheng Yi Wu, Bentley Systems, Watertown, CT
- Speeded up an optimization solver (Darwin Framework) by 40 times sequentially.
- Parallelized the framework on Structure Model Identification applications.
- Delivered a Beta version of the framework.
