Ming Lin’s research focuses on high dimensional high order statistics and the related applications in real world machine learning problems. His recent research topics includes symmetric matrix sensing, Positive Unlabeled learning, One-bit Active learning and nonconvex tensor machine.
In a strategic environment, agents face decisions where the outcomes depend on the behavior of other autonomous agents. The strategic reasoning group develops techniques for understanding and engineering complex multiagent environments, using concepts and methods from economics as well as computer science. Specifically, we apply game-theoretic principles to data from large-scale agent-based simulation, in an approach called empirical game-theoretic analysis (EGTA). EGTA combines simulation, machine learning, and other empirical methods to reason about the strategic issues in complex multiagent settings. We are particularly interested in domains characterized by dynamism, networks, and uncertainty, including applications in financial markets, information security, and sustainable transportation.

In order to understand the relationship between molecular structure and dynamics and biological function, the Frank research group seeks to develop and deploy integrative modeling tools to elucidate the structure and dynamics of biologically relevant molecules. Our methods will utilize readily accessible experimental observables from a variety of sources to first guide structure prediction efforts and then guide atomistic simulations to map the entire conformational landscape of these molecules. We are primarily interested in using our methods to understand how functional ribonucleic acids, either by themselves or in concert with other molecules, achieve specific cellular functions. Our research makes heavy use of advanced machine learning and optimization techniques.
