I graduated from the CS department in August 2009. I am presently working at Yahoo! Labs, Bangalore. My research advisor was Dr. Mohammed Zaki. My PhD thesis was titled "Efficient Algorithms for Mining Arbitrary Shaped Clusters"

During grad school days, other than clustering algorithms, I have worked on pattern mining algorithms in general, with a keen interest in properties (formal concepts) and applications (bioinformatics, text mining, etc.) of graph and sequence patterns.
I have also worked on text classification, social network analysis and link prediction problems. Please see the Research page for further details.

Yahoo! Labs (Bangalore) is looking for Summer 2011 interns. PhD students with background in data mining, machine learning and/or statistics can send me a mail at c-h-a-o-j-v (AT) y a h o o - i n c.com (Remove '-' from the first part). Research projects are broadly related to web information extraction and integration, multimedia search, computational advertising and social network and data analysis.
