I am an assistant professor of computer science at the City University of New York (CUNY) . I am affiliated with both CUNY Queens College and CUNY Graduate Center. I am looking for motivated graduate students and postdocs. Please contact me directly or check out the graduate program at CUNY Graduate Center.

Research Interests
I explore geometric and topological properties of data. These global and robust information can provide insight for modern data analytics. My research draws from the following different domains.

Biomedical imaging informatics: medical images, neuron images, functional MRI.
Publications: MedIA'15, MICCAI'13'14, IPMI'13, ISBI'14'15, CVPR'11, ICCV'11

Machine learning: graphical models, structured learning.
Publications: NIPS'14, AISTATS'13, ICML'12

Topology data analysis: persistent homology, computation of topological features.
Publications: CGTA'13'10, DCG'11, SoCG'11, SODA'10, STACS'08
