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, timeevolving, large realworld graphs
using scalable algorithms and tools.
Here is my resume in [pdf].
