Dr. Wei Jiang honored with an NSF CAREER award
Systems engineering expert is latest Stevens recipient of honorThrough the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program, the National Science Foundation recently awarded Dr. Wei Jiang, an Assistant Professor in Stevens Institute of Technology's Systems Engineering & Engineering Management department, with a four-year grant to research "Data Quality Management through Statistical Quality Control and Data Mining."
"This is a great accomplishment and national recognition attesting to the excellent quality of our junior faculty," commented George P. Korfiatis, Dean of Stevens' Schaefer School of Engineering.
Data quality is of great importance due to the emergence of large volumes of data. Many business and industrial applications critically rely on the quality of information stored in diverse databases and data warehouses. The goal of Jiang's research is to develop a systematic methodology of data quality analysis and improvement to achieve robust decision making under imperfect information environments. The outcomes are expected to be generic and provide a concrete basis of data quality management which can be applied to different data-intensive applications. Ultimately, it will also have a broader impact on advanced theory and the methodology of information quality management, enhanced decision making, and the creation of a workforce of data quality assurance researchers and practitioners.
CAREER: The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of the early career-development activities of those teacher-scholars who most effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their organizations.
