Hi! I am an assistant professor of computer science at Northeastern University, Boston, working at the intersection of machine learning (theory and methods), algorithms, and social data (e.g., social networks). I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford, and worked with the theoretical computer science and machine learning groups. I was a postdoc at University of Pennsylvania for a brief stint. You can find complete information about me in my CV. I enjoy getting deep into technically-challenging questions, while striving for broader impact to our society through advancing knowledge and educating the next-generation of researchers.

MS graduates

Prospective students: I am always looking for students to join us. If you have ideas, I'd love to chat. You can take a look at my recent papers and projects. Undergraduate students interested in pursuing research are also encouraged to contact me. Students from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply to our CS Ph.D. program and will be eligible for one year of fellowship. The ideal student needs to be self-motivated, and have a strong background in algorithms and/or programming. If you are interested in working with my students and me as an RA, you can fill out this form, so that we are aware of your interest. We'll be in touch via email if we see a fit with our projects.
