The Complexity Theory Companion book coverThe Big Data Analytics & Data Mining Program focuses on developing methods for understanding large data sets, including data clustering (grouping similar objects) and association rule mining (discovering regularities). The Program provides expertise in non‐statistical data analysis to researchers across disciplines that require assistance in large-scale data analysis.

The Program Director is Dr. Mitsunori Ogihara. Dr. Ogihara is also a Professor in the Department of Computer Science, the Associate Dean for Digital Library Innovation, and the author of The Complexity Theory Companion, and Music Data Mining.

My program of methodological research is focused on two key issues; these are improving areas where available methods may not be adequate for real psychological data, or where a research question may not be addressed using standard analysis techniques. Specifically, I investigate Bayesian estimation as a tool to help overcome estimation difficulties in structural equation models. I also focus on improving the match between statistical models and psychological theory, because mismatch between model and theory can obscure our understanding of psychological processes and influences.

Office: Room 442, Center for Collaborative Research, NSU Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine

Travis Craddock, PhD is an assistant professor of Psychology, Computer Science and Medicine applying systems biology and biophysics methods towards the purpose of identifying novel treatments for complex chronic illness involving neuroinflammation. His postdoctoral work was conducted under the supervision of Gordon Broderick, PhD, in the Broderick Laboratory for Clinical Systems Biology in the Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. His work with Gordon Broderick, PhD, focused on using a theory driven systems biology approach to investigate neuroendocrine-immune interaction dynamics in neuroinflammation and its relation complex diseases such as Gulf War Illness, and chronic fatigue syndrome. This work was funded by the US Department of Defense.

He received his BSc in co-op physics from the University of Guelph and went on to finish a MSc and PhD in the field of biophysics at the University of Alberta under the supervision of Jack Tuszynski, PhD. His graduate research activities focused on subneural biomolecular information processing, and nanoscale neuroscience descriptions of memory, consciousness and cognitive dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
