My Research Group

I lead the Networked Systems and Data Science Lab at Birmingham. The  lab is part of the inter-departmental Birmingham Human-Computer Interaction Centre.

The scope of our research work is broad and highly interdisciplinary. Current areas of interest include:

    - Large-scale data mining ("big data" mining) and data science;
- Networked systems and network science;
    - Computational social science;
    - Geographic data analysis;
    - Social and ubiquitous computing.

PhD Students

- Antonio Lima
working in the area of spatial networks and processes
- Abhinav Mehrotra working in the area of context-aware computing
- Christoph Stich working in the area of urban computing
- Theofania (Fani) Tsapeli working in the area of real-time data mining of mobile sensing information and social media
