My central research interest is in solving real-world problems in data science with a network perspective. I mostly follow a multifaceted approach of problem solving: theoretical modeling, designing and analyzing low complexity algorithms, and verifying it on real-world data. My research focus on data mining algorithms for large networks with probabilistic guarantees, statistical modeling and inference on networks, and distributed techniques for analyzing big network matrices. I am also interested in application of machine learning to various inference problems on networks, and, in general, stochastic modeling of complex systems. *This paper has an alphabetical author-list and I am a primary contributer.
