I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at Florida State University. My research interest centers around data/network science, database systems, data mining, and data-intensive computation and analytics. Specifically, I have been focused on the foundations, methodologies, and systems for modeling, querying, and mining big, graph-structured data, such as large-scale graph databases and mathematical, physical, biological, and social networks, which are ubiquitous in a wide spectrum of disciplines and application domains, ranging from bioinformatics and computer systems, to business processes, social media, and the Web. My research has been recognized and funded in part by AFOSR-YIP (Air Force Office of Scientific Research - Young Investigator Award), ARO-YIP (Army Research Office - Young Investigator Award), NSF, Danfoss Turbocor, and FSU.
