Tin Kam Ho leads the Statistics and Learning Research Department of Bell Labs at Murray Hill, NJ. She pioneered research in decision combination in multiple classifier systems, random decision forests, data complexity analysis, and many topics in image and text analysis. She has also led major efforts on modeling and monitoring large-scale optical transmission systems. Recently she worked on problems in user profiling, optical network diagnostics, and customer experience management. She is Editor Emerita of the journal Pattern Recognition Letters, and elected Fellow of the IAPR (International Association for Pattern Recognition) and the IEEE. She has over 90 publications and was granted 7 U.S. patents, with several others pending. She received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from State University of New York at Buffalo in 1992.
