Director, Center for Cognitive Computing
I am interested in solving real-life data science problems through development of novel machine learning algorithms. I am also interested in building software that has intelligent behavior and can enhance human capabilities. My research is driven by open data science problems in a wide array of disciplines such as Public Health, Biomedicine, Physical Sciences, Education, Marketing, Social Sciences, Traffic Engineering, and Industrial Engineering.
I am interested in advising self-motivated graduate students interested in machine learning, cognitive computing, and data science. I am looking both at the traditional computer science students and at the non-CS students with a strong background in mathematics (with degrees such as electrical engineering, physics, operations research, applied math, statistics). Interested students are encouraged to contact me by e-mail. Please, send me your CV and write a short description about your academic background and research interests.
