I do not update this page frequently
but it should give a broad view about my research interests
Research Topics (non exclusive): Data Mining, Web Mining,
Content-Based Information Retrieval, Machine Learning, Multimedia Mining, Social Network
Analysis, Data Visualization, applications in Health Informatics.
My list of publications gives the big picture of my research
My research interests are at the confluence of the broadly defined
fields of knowledge discovery from large databases and information
retrieval. That includes data mining from the Internet/Web
encompassing web mining related to the content of web documents, the
structure of the hypertext documents, and the usage of the World Wide
Web. Lately, I am giving special attention to research related to data
analysis in the realm of health/medical informatics.
I like working on specific applications and solving research challenges
pertaining to these applications. However, I also worked on generic algorithms
for canonical data mining tasks such as frequent itemset mining
(sequential and parallel; with and without constraints), contrast
sets, classification (particularly associative classifiers),
clustering (in low and high dimensionality), and outlier
More recent work has focused on social network analysis, particularly
community mining in large networks.
