Hello, everyone! I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Michigan. I am a member of GEMS Lab under supervision of Prof. Danai Koutra. My research interest is in graph-based data mining and machine learning. Specifically, I am interested in advancing the theory behind graph-related problems and designing provably-correct algorithms that scale to real networks, such as online social and collaboration networks. I am also interested in developing interpretable machine learning models. I worked on speeding up distributed graph methods in a multi-query setting in 2017 and developing interpretable NN-based graph classification models in 2018 .


I love outdoor adventures and I travel a lot. Exploring the world outside is always attractive and fascinating.
