Supplied by high-throughput tools and technologies, massive amount of data is being collected in many sectors of our society. Such data holds the promise of supporting ground-breaking discoveries and critical decision-making. Our research is to use and develop powerful analytics tools to unleash the potential of this wealth of data to improve the way in which we understand and interact with the social, technological and business world around us.

Our research follows the philosophy of “from practice, to theory and back to practice”. We look to the real world for practical and important problems; then, we design solutions with provable properties and solid theoretical backing; finally, we build and deploy real systems based on these solutions. Our approach is multidisciplinary by nature, using “tools” from algorithms, machine learning, computional sociology and business analytics.


Our current research focuses on the following three thrusts.
