Research Interests
My current research interests include large-scale constraint-based sequential, graph pattern mining and information/social network analysis, with applications on web, management information systems, business intelligence and bioinformatics. With a theoretical computer science background, I am also interested in algorithm design and complexity analysis for real-life problems in data mining and database systems.
