I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at Boston University working with Prof. Evimaria Terzi in the Data Management Group. My research interests are in the areas of algorithmic data-mining and knowledge discovery, social networks, and computational social science. My application-related research has focused on team-formation problems with applications in computational education and human resource management. My theoretical line of work investigates the limitations that the data and the deployed algorithms impose on the results of data-mining analysis .
