Students will have an opportunity to work with Dr. Luciano Nocera, a Computer Scientist, and Associate Director at USC’s Data Science Institute (DSI). DSI is an informatics research center that focuses on data-driven solutions for real-world applications. Researchers are motivated by the need to address fundamental Data Science problems related to applications with major societal impact, in four major domains including Transportation, Social Media, Security, and Health. We expect to offer students the opportunity to participate in research projects related to Health; examples include (a) using wearables and mobility sensors to understand how active people are and utilize this information to optimize performance in a clinical and military applications, e.g., to build predictive models of human performance and outcomes, (b) contribute to develop serious games for health applications, (c) analyze wearables data including a glucose monitor data to establish the relationship between continuous glucose measures, BMI, diet, activity and biometrics. Depending on the project, by the end of the program students will learn and understand the basics of computer science in data acquisition, storage, analysis and visualization, wearables data, serious games and web technologies. Students will also apply principles through hands-on research and participate in research meetings with graduate and undergraduate students.
