Research Description 

To me, data science is a challenge-oriented science. I am interested in discovering research challenges and leveraging cutting-edge technologies as well as developing new methods to solve problems. I currently focus on healthcare-related challenges, especially transferring data to knowledge and generalization of health informatics approaches. Meanwhile, I am open to other areas that could be improved from the data’s perspectives.
