About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology. My research interests are applied machine learning, data analytics, and social media analysis motivated by real-world problems in social informatics, health informatics and information security. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science of Virginia Tech under Dr. Naren Ramakrishnan. I was a student member at the Discovery Analytics Center.

Multiple fully funded RA positions are available! Click here if you are interested in working with me.
