Zhengming Xing's Summary

A passionate and innovative Ph.D student seeking data analyst position which will
utilize my skills on designing and implementing novel Bayesian models for a wide variety
of data analysis and machine learning applications. During my Ph.D, I successfully
proposed Bayesian models for dataset in diverse fields such as voting behavior, infectious
disease, social network and hyperpectral images. These models can be employed for
uncovering latent structures, prediction, image reconstruction and classfication. In
short, I enjoy designing statistical models for novel applications and collaborating with
people from different fields.

Zhengming Xing's Experience

Research assistant

Duke Unviersity

September 2008Present (6 years 1 month)

• A Big-data Investigation of Electoral Representation
Proposed a novel Bayesian model to jointly analyze over three million voters’ information, Congressional roll-call votes and Legislative text to understand the characteristic of each congressional districts and divergence between voters and their congressperson. Designed a scalable stochastic variational inference algorithm for the model.
• Bayesian Modeling of Space-Time Properties of Infectious Disease in a College Student Population
Proposed a hidden semi-Markov model for student self-reported symptom data to explore the virus propagation patterns for future disease prevention.
• Dictionary Learning for Incomplete Noisy Hyperspectral Images
Proposed a beta process factor analysis model with Gaussian process prior for hyperspectral image analysis to be used for image reconstruction, unmixing and classification.
• Unexploded Ordnance Detection
Designed a feature selection and classification algorithm for detecting unexploded object.
• Others
Factor analysis model for gene expression data, Matrix completion (Netflix problem)
