My research interest is machine learning. I study the foundations of machine learning, providing insights for the strength and weakness of learning algorithms and thus help to guide the development of new algorithms. Recently I am devoted to solving fundamental scientific and mathematical problems via the approach of machine learning. On the application side, I develop algorithms and systems for medical diagnosis based on machine learning methods.
