Seunghak Lee (이승학)
Recently, I moved to Human Longevity, Inc, as a research scientist. Prior to that, I was a project scientist in the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Eric P. Xing.
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University, M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Toronto, and B.S. in Chemistry and Computer Science and Engineering at POSTECH.
My research interests include computational biology and machine learning. I am interested in integrative approaches to the analysis of genetic and biomedical datasets, genome-wide association studies, visual analytics, distributed optimization, and large-scale machine learning algorithms and systems.
