I received my Ph.D. from the
Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO)
program in May 2013 under the supervision of Professor
focuses on mathematical and algorithmic problems that arise in
the analysis of network and biological data.
During my first years at Carnegie Mellon University I was supervised by Professor Christos Faloutsos in the Machine Learning Department.
Currently, I am postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) in Brown University, for the semester program on Network Science and Graph Algorithms.
My mentor is Professor Eli Upfal.
In Fall'13, I visited Aalto University. I taught there a class on random graphs and complex networks.
My main research goal is to develop principled approaches
that create value out of data based on well-founded
mathematical, statistical and algorithmic tools.
I am particularly interested into studying structural properties of complex networks, analyzing random processes on graphs, big graph data analytics and stochastic graph models.
Also, I participate in an interdisciplinary project on cancer data mining in collaboration with Professor Russell Schwartz.
