I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Brandeis University. My research interests are artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data mining, in particular graph mining and learning, and AI for social good. Recently, I focus on developing resource-efficient and trustworthy graph learning theories and algorithms. I also use AI to combat the opioid crisis, improve food and nutrition service, enhance social and information infrastructure security, and advance interdisciplinary studies.
