Many emerging applications of machine learning involve time series and spatio-temporal data.  In this talk, I will discuss a collection of machine learning approaches to effectively analyze and model large-scale time series and spatio-temporal data.  Experiment results will be shown to demonstrate the effectiveness of our models in healthcare and climate applications.


Yan Liu is an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California since 2010.  Before that, she was a Research Staff Member at IBM Research.  She received her M.Sc and Ph.D. degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004 and 2007.  Her research interest includes developing scalable machine learning and data mining algorithms with applications to social media analysis, computational biology, climate modeling and healthcare analytics.  She has received several awards, including NSF CAREER Award, Okawa Foundation Research Award, ACM Dissertation Award Honorable Mention, Best Paper Award in SIAM Data Mining Conference, Yahoo! Faculty Award, IBM Faculty Award and the winner of several data mining competitions such as KDD Cup and INFORMS data mining competition.
