Hi! My name is Azade Nazi. I have recently joined DMX group at Microsoft Research as a post-doc researcher. Before joining Microsoft, I completed my PhD in Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Texas, Arlington under the supervision of Dr. Gautam Das in Database Exploration Lab (DBXLAB).  I did my Masters in Computer Science at Sharif University of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Hamid Sarbazi-Azad.

I am interested in different areas like Data Mining, Information Retrieval & Web Mining, Hidden Graph, Database, and Social Network Analysis.  During my PhD, I worked on novel problems of Microblog sampling, Query hidden attributes, and automatic user feedback system.
