    • Main contributor in the statistical analysis and accuracy validation of Spatiocyte algo- rithm, a particle simulator in Ecell4 platform (a software environment for biochemical simulation). Successfully resolved several accuracy issue in Spatiocyte algorithm. Related publications: WXChew2018PhysRevE, WXChew2019PhysRevE, Masaki2019PhysRevE • Analyzed large datasets of 3D microscopy image (Python) and revealed a novel cel- lular feature. • Involved in the exploratory data analysis and feature generation of a machine learn- ing project for cell type identification. The proposed project has successfully obtain funding approval. • Contributed to the open source community work (feature suggestion, debugging) re- lated to Ecell4 platform.
