I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Statistics at Purdue University. My research interests lie in the fields of machine learning and data mining. In particular, I focus on the development and analysis of algorithms for relational domains, including social networks, citation analysis, and fraud detection. My recent work can be broadly categorized into three areas: (1) design and implementation of data mining techniques, (2) discovery of, and adjustment for, statistical biases due to relational data characteristics, and (3) application to real-world tasks.
