    In this thesis, we analyze learner performance in two edX programming courses. We look at many dierent types of learners, such as learners who have taken both intro and advanced courses, learners who opt to pay for ...
  • Allele-Specic QTL fine-mapping with PLASMA 

    Wang, Austin T. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
    We introduce PLASMA (PopuLation Allele-Specic MApping), a statistical ne- mapping method that leverages allele-specic (AS) genomic data to improve detection of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) with causal effects on molecular ...
  • A machine learning framework for predictive maintenance of wind turbines 

    Wang, Katherine(Katherine Yuchen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
    Wind energy is one of the fastest growing energy sources in the world. However, the failure to detect the breakdown of turbine parts can be very costly. Wind energy companies have increasingly turned to machine learning ...
