About Ka Yee Yeung

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering and Technology at University of Washington - Tacoma, and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Microbiology at University of Washington - Seattle. My research focuses on the development of machine learning tools, their application to computational biology and reproducibility of data analyses. My passion is method development for integration of multiple sources of big data. In particular, I am interested in the development of methods to effectively integrate heterogeneous high-throughput data sources in the construction of regulatory networks and the identification of biologically meaningful biomarkers. I am a computer scientist by training (Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Washington - Seattle under the supervision of Larry Ruzzo). My research spans multiple fields, including computational biology, big data analytics, cloud computing, virtualization, reproducibility of research, statistics and machine learning.
