The overarching theme of my work is the principled forecasting, measurement, analysis, and mining of large-scale complex social and communication systems. Networks are everywhere as they naturally frame some of the highest impact computing applications: from online social networking, to Web search, to product recommendations, to mobile ad-hoc networking. My research blends practical issues with theory, focused on how new theoretical results can advance novel applications.
