Short Biography

Dr. Wei Jin has been an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, North Dakota State University, since 2008. 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(particularly text and web mining), information retrieval and extraction, machine learning, and bioinformatics.

I am looking for motivated and dedicated graduate students to work with me in the above areas. Please send me your resume if interested. I expect you to have some background in data mining, information retrieval and/or machine learning.
