I am a full professor in the Computer Science Department, Viterbi School of Engineering at USC. I was an assistant professor from 2010 to 2016, and an associate professor from 2016 to 2020. Before joining USC, I was a research staff member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center from 2006 to 2010. I received my M.S. and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests include machine learning with applications to health, sustainability, and social media.

Here's my google scholar page for list of publications and Melady group website for details about my research group and research projects.
