Personal Information

My name is Jiasen Yang and I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student at the Department of Statistics in Purdue University. I obtained a B.S. degree in Statistics from the Special Class for the Gifted Young at the University of Science and Technology of China in July 2013, and an M.S. degree in Statistics and Computer Science from Purdue in May 2015.

My research interests lie in the areas of machine learning, statistical relational learning, and statistical network analysis. My advisor is Prof. Jennifer Neville. I am generally interested in developing mathematical and statistical models of large-scale networks, and in the past I have worked on network sampling algorithms and ensemble methods for collective classification. I am also interested in Bayesian nonparametric models of network data and the emerging area of topological data analysis. Please refer to my CV and the Research page for details.
