Research Interest

My research interests cover parallel and distributed computing, large-scale data mining and machine learning, big data systems and applications, and optimization algorithms. In specific, I would like to work on scalable parallel data mining algorithms which facilitate computational and scientific applications by dealing with large-scale data via employing efficient parallel computing strategies to them via appropriate parallel runtime models, such as MPI, GraphLab, and (iterative) MapReduce, on various parallel and distributed environments. I am also highly interested in applying the optimization techniques underlying data mining and machine learning algorithms in order to achieve better outputs.
