Research Interest

In general, I am interested in discovering useful knowledge from large amounts of data. In particular, I focus on designing algorithms and identifying new approaches to discover cause-and-effect relationships. I am also interested in understanding the social dynamics of human behavior through the analysis of data such as analysis of social networks or social media systems.
