Shuai Huang

Machine Learning, Healthcare, and Engineering


Shuai’s research is driven by challenging data analytics and AI problems, emphasizes innovation in machine learning and AI modeling for complex systems and processes in the connected world, automates the integration of human with these data-driven learning systems, and targets interpretable and explainable decision-makings with discretion of AI ethics and accountability.

He develops methodologies for modeling, monitoring, anomaly detection, diagnosis, and prognosis of complex networked systems, such as brain connectivity networks, manufacturing processes, enterprise systems, cyber-physics systems, and Internet of Things (IoT).

He also develops novel AI and machine learning models to integrate the massive heterogeneous datasets such as neuroimaging, genomics, proteomics, laboratory tests, demographics, and clinical variables, for facilitating scientific discoveries in biomedical research and better decision making in clinical practices.

Working with domain experts, these data-driven learning, data engineering, and decision-making models are applied to a range of applications such as healthcare (precision medicine, equitable health care, fair genetic risk score, disease research, biomarker discovery), neuroscience, system biology, IoT, monitoring and anomaly detection, and transportation (mobility data analysis, user behavior modeling for smart transportation demand management (TDM)).
