My research focuses on the problems at the intersection of graphs, machine learning, and data science. I design algorithms that optimize graph-based processes and improve scalability of traditional graph combinatorial and mining problems. I also deploy these methods for problems in the areas of computational social science and business.

Before joining UIC, I was a research assistant professor in the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO) hosted by Prof. Brian Uzzi. I received my Ph.D in Computer Science from University of California, Santa Barbara where I was advised by Prof. Ambuj Singh. I got my Master of Engineering degree in Computer Science and Automation Department from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India.
