I am Associate Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University.
My research focuses on mining and modeling large social and information networks, their evolution, and diffusion of information and influence over them. Problems I investigate are motivated by large scale data, the Web and on-line media.
I am also Chief Scientists at Pinterest, where I am focusing on machine learning problems.
