Welcome to the Geometry, Statistics and Optimization lab led by professors Lizhen Lin and Dong Quan Nguyen!

The goal of our lab is to study broad statistical and optimization problems arising in data science. We aim to advance fundamental theory, algorithms and computational tools for statistics and optimization. One of our key insights are to employ geometric and topological tools for statistics inference and optimizations. For example, we have been utilizing topology and geometry for network analysis and big data analysis. Our research can be summarized in the following four general categories.
