Data Mining Lab

The Data Mining lab led by Dr. Fodeh seeks to develop innovative methodologies to address challenging problems in healthcare and biomedical informatics.

The current focus of the group is analysis of exceedingly large data sets; especially those that arise in the application areas of text mining, information retrieval and extraction, machine learning and deep learning.

The emphasis of the lab is developing and applying sound algorithms that utilize and combine multiple data modalities for central tasks such as prediction and clustering of high-dimensional big data.

Uncovering the latent low-dimensional structure of big data that preserves sparsity and non-negativity is essential to enhance representation, interpretation, and by extension success of algorithms.

The developed methods are tested on health data and social media data.
