I am interested in developing methods and algorithms for detecting and/or recovering structure in data. I am equally interested in applying such tools to real world problems. My research interests include network theory, community detection, time-dependent networks, stochastic block models, matrix completion, graph sparsification, covariance matrices, combinatorial optimization, and spectral optimization.
I am also interested in developing generative benchmark models for "mesoscale" structure (e.g., community strucure) in interdependent data (e.g., time-dependent data).
