In the past five years, multi-armed bandits with covariates, also called "contextual bandits" in machine learning, have become an active area of research in data science, stochastic optimization, and statistical modeling because of their applications to the development of personalized strategies in translational medicine and in recommender systems for web-based marketing and electronic business....

As a classical problem in Statistical Mechanics, consider an infinite one-dimensional chain of harmonic oscillators that are interacting via a repulsive potential. Macroscopically, the density functions for mass, momentum and energy satisfy the Euler Equation. By adding noise to the system we may violate some of the conservation laws and simplify the corresponding macroscopic equations. I present...

Abstract: In this talk, I would like to introduce some of my past and recent projects. I will divide the talk into two parts. In the first part, I will briefly review some of my work on dimension reduction, sequence analysis and networks analysis. In the second part, I will focus on a neuroimaging project. The goal is to use imaging data, which is in the form of a multidimensional array, a.k.a....
