I am a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University since Fall 2007. My primary research interests are in data mining and databases. I also have interest in machine learning applications to data mining. Currently I am working with my advisor Christos Faloutsos on social network analysis and large graph mining. In particular, we try to find interesting patterns/anomalies in weighted, time-evolving, large real-world graphs using scalable algorithms and tools. Here is my resume in [pdf].
