OverviewWelcome! I am currently a lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London. I am involved in designing course material for the Data Science masters program, particularly on big data applications. The focus of my research is on methods (based on machine learning) for mining meaningful information from large scale data. Much of my research has focused on mobile phone data. I also work on mobile phone sensed data-driven applications, basically applications which can make use of human behaviour knowledge extracted from mobile sensed data. One example is the simulation of epidemics from mobile phone sensed physical proximity data. Prior to joining Goldsmiths, I was a research assistant at Idiap Research Institute. I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 2011.
