I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science department at SUNY-Binghamton. I obtained my PhD from University of Maryland, College Park in 2016.
I am broadly interested in machine learning, data mining, and natural language processing. My research interests include structured prediction, statistical relational modeling, natural language processing, probabilistic modeling. My research focuses on structured prediction problems involving rich, complex, interlinked, heterogeneous data in online networks.
I direct the Machine Learning Research Group at Binghamton University. For more information on ongoing research projects, please visit the group website.
I am looking for motivated Masters and PhD students to work on Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. Please contact me if you are interested in working with me!
