Aristides Gionis

I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science of Aalto University, leading the Data Mining Group.

I am also an ISI Foundation fellow, in Torino.

My research focuses on data mining and algorithmic data analysis. I am particular interested in algorithms for graphs, social-network analysis, and algorithms for web-scale data.

Before coming to Aalto I was a senior research scientist in Yahoo! Research, and previously an Academy of Finland postdoctoral scientist in the University of Helsinki. I obtained my PhD from Stanford University in 2003. My PhD adviser was Rajeev Motwani. During my doctorate studies I had the pleasure to work as a summer intern in Microsoft Research, AT&T Labs, and Bell Labs Lucent Technologies.
