Byung Hoon Park, an R&D staff member at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has worked as a data scientist for more than 12 years. His past research includes computational statistics for stream data mining, distributed machine learning and data mining, data-driven HPC agent-based modeling, and discriminative probabilistic graphical models for text mining. He led several BigData projects on healthcare sponsored by Center for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS) that aimed to build an analytic infrastructure leveraging existing/emerging technologies such as Hadoop, MPP, and NoSQL. He has also led a number of HPC software R&D projects that aim to bring HPC capabilities into a number of scientific domains including biology, climate, healthcare, supercomputer resiliency, and homeland security utilizing BigData approaches. He also works as the liaison between the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate (CCSD) and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) to provide a large scale compute and data analytic capabilities to neutron and material scientists. He received his Ph.D. and B.S in Computer Science from Washington State University and Yonsei University, respectively.
