|Izquierdo, Eduardo J.||Cognitive Science Program, School of Informatics and Computing / IUB|
Bio: My research interest is in understanding the neural basis of behavior, as it arises from the interaction between the organism’s nervous system, its body, and its environment. We combine connectome graph analysis, neural network simulations, evolutionary algorithms for optimization, taking into account experimental observations, and mathematical analysis, including information theory and dynamical systems theory, to generate and understand complete brain-body-environment models of simple but biologically and cognitively interesting behaviors.

|Ning, Xia||Department of Computer & Information Science, School of Science / IUPUI|
Bio: Dr. Ning is working on Data Mining, Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics and their applications in e-Commerce and Recommender Systems, where she develops personalized and scalable methods and software tools to discover knowledge regarding users' personal preferences, intentions and behavior patterns, etc, from their purchases activities, social networks, click traces, online reviews, etc, and correspondingly produce personalized recommendations. She is also involved in research on drug discovery and bioinformatics, where she develops effective data mining and machine learning methodologies to facilitate rapid and targeted exploration over chemical and biological spaces, and computational methods for various Chemoinformatics and Bioinformatics problems. She is also active in complex systems research, where she develop Big Data Analytics methods to help understand system behaviors, detect anomalies from large and heterogeneous systems, and identify security related issues, etc.

|Shih, Patrick||Informatics, School of Informatics and Computing / Bloomington|
Bio: I'm an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington. I am a Fellow of the Center for Computer-Mediated Communication (CCMC). I am also an affiliated faculty at the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (CISAB), the Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI), and the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine. I am interested in utilizing mixed methods approaches to tackle research problems in online and geographic communities. Specifically, my current research focuses on leveraging awareness of individual and community activities embedded in sensor technologies, smart devices, social media, and online forums in the design and construction of novel persuasive interfaces and civic engagement platforms that facilitate sustainable motivational and behavioral changes.
