Machine Learning Algorithm Development
Our effort on ML algorithm development focuses on reinforcement learning algorithms, including multi-armed bandits. We study how to bring RL to real-world applications by addressing challenges such as constraints, data efficiency, and explainability. We also study security and privacy issues of machine learning algorithms.
We focus on deep DDN uses network measurement and user behavior data, based on machine learning techniques, and control/optimization mechanisms, to solve network control and management challenges. We study various issues in wireless networks, including cellular network configuration, network slicing, resource management, 360-degree video transmission, user experience improvement, and encrypted network traffic classification.
Machine Learning Applications in Animal Health
We collaborate with Prof. Beatriz Martinez Lopes from UC Davis Veterinarian Medicine and Prof. Maria Clavijo from Iowa State Univ. on veterinarian health. We use machine learning methods to develop effective surveillance and control mechanisms for infectious disease and antibiotic resistence in the swine industry. The work is currently supported by two NSF grants.
