I am an assistant professor at the iSchool at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) with joint appointments in the Department of Computer Science and the Information Trust Institute. I got my PhD from Carnegie Mellon, School of Computer Science.
My research is at the nexus of network analysis, natural language processing and machine learning. In my group, we advance theoretically-grounded, computational methods and technologies that help 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.
