I am an assistant professor at the iSchool (a.k.a. Graduate School of Library and Information Science) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).My work is at the nexus of network analysis, natural language processing and machine learning. I advance computational methods and technologies that help people to better understand the interplay and co-evolution of information and socio-technical networks. In my empirical work, I study networks from the geopolitical, business and science domain. I am particularly interested in covert information and covert networks. I obtained my PhD (thesis) from Carnegie Mellon University, School of Computer Science, Computation, Organizations and Society Program. Details on my research are here.
