As of August 2012, I am a PhD student at the University of Southern California (USC), Information Sciences Institute (ISI) under supervision of Kristina Lerman. My main research interest is the study of large and complex networks, especially online social networks, which includes the measurement and analysis of social activity in OSNs.

Before joining USC, I got my master's from Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), Germany. I worked with Krishna Gummadi as my advisor and also with Meeyoung Cha (KAIST) and Winter Mason (Stevens Institute of Technology) during my master's.
