I am a Research Scientist at IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. My interests lie in the areas of data mining, scalable text mining, natural language processing, information networks, and other related fields.

I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science, awarded in 2014 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). My research was in the area of Data Mining, supervised by Professor Jiawei Han.  I previously received an M.S. in Computer Science from UIUC in 2011, and a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago in 2007.
