Furong Huang is an associate professor of computer science.

Huang’s research focuses on machine learning, high-dimensional statistics and distributed algorithms—both the theoretical analysis and practical implementation of parallel spectral methods for latent variable graphical models.

Some applications of her research include developing fast detection algorithms to discover hidden and overlapping user communities in social networks, learning convolutional sparse coding models for understanding semantic meanings of sentences and object recognition in images, healthcare analytics by learning a hierarchy on human diseases for guiding doctors to identify potential diseases afflicting patients, and more.

Huang recently completed a postdoctoral position at Microsoft Research in New York.

She received her doctorate in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Irvine in 2016.
