PhD Student
Graduate Research Assistant

Rui Xie is a Ph.D. Student at the Big Data Analytics Lab and Department of Statistics, University of Georgia. Rui is working with Professors Ping Ma, Wenxuan Zhong, and T.N. Sriram. Prior starting his Ph.D., Rui obtained his master degree in Engineering Statistics from the H. Milton School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. He has a B.S. in Finance and a B.S. in Physics from Xiamen University, China.

Rui's main field of interest is the development of statistical sketching and sampling methods for large-scale streaming dependent data, and the methods he has developed have been applied to different fields ranging from streaming online learning and sampling, spatial pattern reconstruction with sketching, to decentralized computing. He collaborates across several disciplines outside statistics, including computer science, geophysics, electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering and neuroscience, on data science problems related to signal reconstruction and denoising using randomized sketching and sampling, large-scale data normalization, statistical machine learning for high dimensional data, learning algorithms for Internet of Things (IoT), etc.
