I am a fifth-year PhD candidate in the Management Information Systems Department at the University of Arizona. I am on the job market in the 2019-2020 academic year and will graduate by May 2020. My research interests lie in health risk analytics and business analytics. My dissertation – titled "Big Data-Based Health Risk Analytics: A Deep Learning Approach" – develops novel deep learning methods to understand, predict, and mitigate multi-faceted health risks from three progressive yet integrated levels: patient behavioral risk, disease risk, and policy risk. My prior works have been published or under deep round review at many premier journals, including MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, and Journal of American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA).
