Yixi Xu

I am a fifth-year Ph.D candidates in the department of statistics, Purdue University. My research interest are machine learning, big data analysis, and quantitative marketing. My current projects include Estimation of Heterogeneity for Multinomial Probit Models and Compositional Nonparametric Prediction.


Yixuan Qiu

I am a Ph.D student in Department of Statistics, Purdue University. My research interest includes statistical learning and inference, with a focus on large scale data analysis. My current project aims to combine deep neural network models with data visualization techniques, in order to provide insights on exploratory data analysis for complex and high-dimensional data sets.


Yao Chen

I am a third-year Ph.D candidates in the department of statistics, Purdue University. My research interest is in big data analysis and Deep Learning with an emphasize on medical data analysis, including imaging analysis and so on. My current projects is 'AF classification from a short single lead ECG Recording'. I also hold a research assistant position in Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue University.


Jiapeng Liu

I am a third-year PhD candidate in the Department of Statistics, Purdue University. I received my Bachelor in Statistics at University of Science and Technology of China. My current research interests are deep neural network and image analysis.


Animesh Sinha

I am a second year Master's student pursuing joint masters in Computer Science and Statistics at Purdue University. I received my Bachelor in Computer Science from IIT Kharagpur in India. I spent the last summer working at Facebook on Ads Ranking, and have recently become interested in Deep Learning and its applications in various areas. Currently, I am working on exploring problems in area of Display Advertising and solving them using Deep Learning.


Mohit Sharma

I am a second year Master's student in Joint MS in CS/Stats program at Purdue University. I completed my Bachelor from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (India) in Computer Science. My research interests lie broadly in Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Computational Optimization. Currently I am working on segmentation problem in medical imaging using both Convolutional Neural Networks(CNN) and several extensions of Multi-Atlas based methods. In the past, I have also worked on CNN based Object Segmentation pipelines. Recently, I have started exploring the field at the intersection of Reinforcement Learning and Causal Inference.


Tim Park

I am a second-year undergraduate student pursuing a BS in Mathematical Statistics with a minor in Computer Science. I am currently working on performing object detection and classification tasks by implementing neural net architectures described in recent research publications.
