## Xingye Qiao

### Professor and Dept Chair; Data Science TAE Chair

### Background

Xingye Qiao, currently a professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Binghamton University, is a distinguished researcher and educator in statistics, machine learning and causal inference. Before joining the department in 2010, he earned a BS from Fudan University in 2005 and both an MS and a PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007 and 2010, respectively.

Qiao's research is dedicated to developing predictive and inferential tools for tackling complex data challenges, such as imbalanced classes, high-dimensional data, transfer learning and inference from observational studies. He is recognized for creating efficient, theoretically sound algorithms with built-in confidence guarantees and for his commitment to enhancing the trustworthiness of statistical methods in critical domains such as healthcare.

Beyond his technical contributions, Qiao is a fervent advocate for data science ethics, AI fairness and promoting an inclusive approach to data science. His interdisciplinary collaborations and outreach activities underscore his commitment to advancing his field and ensuring its ethical application in society.
