Research

Dr. Niu's research area of interests include Machine Learning, Transfer Learning (Deep Transfer Learning), and Biomedical Informatics. More specifically, he is interested in exploring distant-domain transfer, cross-modality-transfer, graph neural works, and biomedical application with ML. Deep learning is great but it is facing significant difficulties, including but not limited to, insufficient data, incompatible computational power, and dynamic input structure. Below is a short list of open challenges:

1. Transfer Learning-enabled Graph Neural Networks
2. HIV Prediction/Prevention with Graph Neural Networks
3. Large-Scale Electronic Health Record (EHR) Mining
4. Anomaly Detection for Imbalance Medical Data Mining

My Little Hobbies

Badminton:
He started training as a competitive badminton player at early age and retired after college. He participated in many state and national tournaments in US and received quite a few medals. As for now, he still keeps it as his favorite sport.

Climbing:
He found his passion in climbing (mainly bouldering for now) since 2021. He plans to go outdoor to feel the touch of real rocks and breath the fresh air.
