We study deep learning on health and medical data. Each variable in health and medical data has different characteristic, thus data standardization plays critical role for accuracy and efficiency of deep learning. We investigate data generation, data privacy protection, data standardization, deep learning, and data visualization, to achieve personalized preventive medicine based on precise predictions.

Main Research Field
