I'm an assistant professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, with appointments in the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA) and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. I joined the faculty in August 2013, after completing my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
I work in "network science", with a particular focus on multimodal/heterogeneous information networks. My research lies at the intersection of machine learning and databases and information retrieval.
I respond fairly quickly to emails sent to email@example.com. I maintain an office in 387 Fitzpatrick Hall at Notre Dame, and I can sometimes be contacted with GTalk instant messenger system via firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll also find me on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, but I rarely check my accounts.
Currently I am looking for highly motivated MS and PhD students interested in data and network science. Contact me if you are interested.
