Hello, I'm a Professor in
the computer science department working on data mining algorithm
development. With collaborators I work on applications of my work to
areas such as Neuroscience (with Owen Carmichael and Jieping Ye)
and Militrary applications (LCDR Walker).
I have several research
projects that I work on, but the common connection is novel problems,
rigorous formulations and practical applications. I typically work with other faculty/researchers to
apply my work so if you can see some potential application then please
let me email me.
I have several research assistantship slots
available for students who are motivated to do research in data mining.
My research is a mix of
rigorous algorithm design, implementation and application to
novel areas of social importance. Please read some of my work and
contact me if your genuinely interested. Do NOT send form letters.
I bought the constrained-clustering.org domain name
and its being set up as a central repository for things related to
clustering with constraints.
