Short Biography

Dr. Wei Jin is currently an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering,Univeristy of North Teaxas. Before joining UNT, she was with the Department of Computer Science at North Dakota State University, from 2008-2016. She received her PhD and MS degrees in Computer Science & Engineering from State University of New York at Buffalo, in 2008 and 2007, respectively. She also earned a ME degree from Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2002.

Research

Dr. Wei Jin's research primarily focuses on data mining and knowledge discovery, information retrieval and extraction, Web mining and social network analysis, and biomedical and healthcare applications. .

I am looking for motivated and dedicated graduate students to work with me in the above areas. Please send me your resume and transcripts if interested.
