Research Interest
My research interests focus on applying the machine learning algorithms, text-mining approaches, and ontological reasoning on “omics” big data for knowledge discovery in life science domain. Knowledge discovery can be transformed as link prediction problem in the biological/biomedical networks, comprising drugs, genes, diseases, and other biomedical concepts. Bio-ontologies encodes domain specific knowledge base using description logic, which enables reasoning and rule-based inference to discover new knowledge based on the existing ones. Machine learning algorithms including decision tree, random forest, support vector machine, and deep learning may study the rule sets from bio-ontologies to provide insights on ranking and clustering to support decision making. In addition, the co-occurrence based text-mining approaches can be applied on chemical/gene/disease and biomedical literature associations to further validate and compare the ranking and clustering results.
