From Chang-Ho Chin (Also known as Chang-Ho Jihn), Director of BIG Data Laboratory:

I currently serve as Director of Healthcare Big Data Center at Kyung Hee University. I am an associate professor of the Department of Industrial Engineering and the Department of Software Convergence (by courtesy) at Kyung Hee University. I served as the department chair from 2008 to 2010 and from 2014 to 2015. I received my Ph.D. degree in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University, USA.

Since 2016, I have been engaged in research as a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, USA.

The research interest of BIG (Behavior/Intervention/Green) Data Laboratory is in discovering new insights by extracting and fitting together implicit, previously unknown and potentially useful pieces of information from big data. It especially focuses on issues at the convergence of engineering and humanities by mining and modeling ‘mobile device sensed data’ pertaining to human behavior and context, with the goal of identifying and predicting behavior pattern and personal relationship for providing practical insight in business and healthcare. Another research interest is in developing a general statistical framework for effectively and efficiently monitoring, diagnosing, and controlling variation in data-rich environments such as manufacturing and the healthcare and service industries, with the goal of improving process stability and capability for competitiveness for enterprises. The aforementioned research is accomplished with multidisciplinary engineering technologies integrated with data mining, reality mining, statistics, social network analysis, cognitive science, and psychology.

My research has been supported by numerous industries and government agencies (refer to my CV for details). I received the KIIE Academic-Industrial Cooperation Project Contest award in 2009, the KISE Best Research Award in 2005, the INFORMS Annual Conference Best Student Paper Competition finalist recognition in 2004, and the Korean Honor Scholarship in 1999.

The research interests are in:
1. Big Data Analysis and Business Analytics/Intelligence based on Data Mining and Statistics
2. Health/Business Diagnosis
3. Health/Business Intervention
4. Health/Business Monitoring
5. Health/Business Screening

I am currently looking for a RESEARCH PROFESSOR, a POSTDOC, and top-quality students pursuing a Master , a Ph.D., or a combined Master and Ph.D. degree under my supervision. Tuition exemption and other financial supports to TA, RA, or instructor are offered to all. Please, feel free to ask for the recruitment brochure.
