|Shen-Shyang Ho is a tenure-track assistant professor in the Division of Computer Science at the Nanyang Technological University starting January 2012 and a visiting research scientist at the Center for Automation Research (CfAR), Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), University of Maryland, College Park. Before this, he was a researcher at CfAR, UMIACS from June 2010 to December 2011. He was a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology (JPL) from August 2009 to May 2010 and a NASA postdoctoral fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) from August 2007 to July 2009. Shen-Shyang received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from George Mason University in 2007 and his Bachelor (Honors) in Science (Mathematics and Computational Science) from the National University of Singapore in 1999.|
From 2007-2009, Shen-Shyang was the recipient of the highly competitive NASA postdoctoral fellowship to develop robust cyclone tracking and eye-locating algorithms using heterogeneous data from multiple satellite sources, and the development of novel data mining techniques to understand global cyclone evolutions. As a PI and a co-PI, he obtained more than US$1 million in research grants from NASA, JPL, and GSFC between 2007 and 2011. His research interests include data mining, machine learning, and pattern recognition in spatio-temporal/data streaming settings. In particular, his current research focuses on (i) machine learning approaches to handle predictive modelling and pattern mining tasks utilizing multivariate heterogeneous data from mobile devices and (ii) big-data (in particular, satellite data) analytics and management on array-based databases (e.g., SciDB).
Shen-Shyang is the author of 33 technical articles, most in international peer-reviewed journals, conferences, and workshops including IEEE TPAMI (2), IEEE TAES, ICML, ACM GIS (2), IJCAI (2), UAI, KDD (2), ICPR, and IEEE ICDM. He has two US patents. He has served as a program committee member for IEEE ICDM, PAKDD, SDM, ACM-GIS, and ICML. He has reviewed for journals such as IEEE TPAMI, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TAES, and J. VLDB. He gave a tutorial at AAAI and IJCNN in 2011. He has also participated in NSF CISE/IIS grant review panels.
