Seung Jun Shin

  • I am Seung Jun Shin (신승준), an associate professor in the Department of Statistics, Korea University. My research is broadly related to statistical machine learning, data science, and their applications. In particular, I am interested in recovering informative signals buried in large-scale data. Application areas that I have been involved in include, but are not limited to, genetics, medicine, environmental science, political science, and marketing.

  • Before joining Korea University, I worked as a postdoc fellow in the University of Texas MD Anderson cancer center at Houston Texas (Mentors: Dr. Wenyi Wang and Dr. Ying Yuan) . I obtained my Ph.D. degree in statistics at North Carolina State University in 2013 under the supervision of Dr. Yichao Wu and Dr. Hao Helen Zhang, and Bachelor's and Master's degrees at Korea University. I am a recipient of the IMS Travel Award (previously known as the Laha Award) in JSM 2012.
