I am also an ISI Foundation fellow, in Torino.
In Aalto, among other duties, I am the director of the EIT Digital Data Science major, the Aalto Bachelor's Programme in Science and Technology, and the Data Science BSc major.
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.
The Data Mining group is now hiring.
