Some News (and some not so new news)

  • Our paper "Proactive Discovery of Fake News Domains from Real-Time Social Media Feeds", which was presented at the Workshop on Computational Methods in Online Misbehavior (CyberSafety), The Web Conference, 2020, received the best-paper award.
  • In 2018-2019, I was on sabbatical at INRIA, visiting Ioana Manolescu and Jean-Daniel Fekete
  • Our paper "A Large-scale Study about Quality and Reproducibility of Jupyter Notebooks" has received an ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award and a FOSS Impact Paper Award.

Research Interests and Projects

My research is in the general area of data management. I develops methods and systems that enable a wide range of users to obtain trustworthy insights from data. This spans topics in large-scale data analysis and integration, visualization, machine learning, provenance management, and web information discovery, and different application areas, including urban analytics, predictive modeling, and computational reproducibility.
