About me

I am a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at Boston University. I work with Prof. Mark Crovella and Prof. Evimaria Terzi.

I am mainly interested in designing algorithms for large-scale data-driven problems. My work focuses on problems that arise in analyzing social and biological networks.
In my research I exploit tools from various areas including Optimization, Statistical Inference, Machine Learning, and Spectral Graph Theory.

Before joining BU, I was a research assistant at the Fraunhofer institute, where I worked with Prof. Thomas Gärtner.

I received a M.Sc. in computer science from university of Bonn. I completed my Master's thesis under the supervision of Prof. Christian Bauckhage.
