About Us

Welcome to our lab! We are an inter-disciplinary research lab in the School of Computational Science and Engineering in the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. We are housed on the 12th and 13th floors of the CODA building in beautiful Midtown Atlanta.


Research Interests

Our core research interests are in data science and machine learning. However, we are motivated by highly challenging real world problems, especially as they arise in computational epidemiology, public health, critical infrastructure/urban computing, cybersecurity and the Web. We approach these applications from a data-driven viewpoint, and invent new inter-disciplinary methodologies bridging models/domain knowledge (e.g. disease models) with data (e.g. surveillance). We work closely with domain experts in these topics and design novel methods and tools cutting-across network science, combinatorial and stochastic optimization, data mining, AI and simulation areas.

How do you forecast pandemics? How you do distribute resources to stop an outbreak as fast as possible? How do failures in power grids cascade? We are broadly interested in Data Science, Machine Learning and AI with emphasis on solving big-data problems in networks and sequences. Many of the research questions we answer deal with understanding and managing efficiently, dynamical mechanisms (like propagation) on networks, occurring across natural, social and technological systems. These include problems motivated from public health, computational epidemiology, cybersecurity, urban computing and the web. My research combines theoretical analysis of models, developing efficient algorithms and empirical studies on large scale data.
