Graduate Assistant

Department of Computer Science and Engineering
Michigan State University

I am a computer science PhD student at MSU under supervision of Prof. Pang-Ning Tan and Prof. Abdol-Hossein Esfahanian. Before joining Computer Science Department in 2015, I received my M.Sc in Statistic Department at MSU.My research focus is on developing innovative machine learning and data mining algorithms with application on network analysis. My PhD research focal point is designing socially aware algorithms. In particular, in my thesis, I am trying to answer the following two questions: How can we detect unfair decisions generated by machine learning algorithms? And how can we develop algorithms which ensure fair outcomes? In addition to my ethical algorithm research, I also had research contributions in the area of network mining and recommender systems.
