Bio

 

With the support from NWO "Research Talent" Grant, I am currently working on the project of "Developing Novel ClusteringMethods for Large-scale Multi-source Data". The project is expected to result in powerful tools that could help psychologists and social scientists to extract important insights from the increasing available huge data-sets. Besides my statistical interests in big data and clustering methods, I also have substantive interests in social and personality psychology.
