Research Interests

==================================================

My primary research interest lies in social network analysis and social media analysis. I am interested in both solving real-world problem in social network
with machine learning and data mining techniques and provide theoretic analysis of behaviors on social network with tools such as game theory.
I am particular interested in diffusion phenomena on social netowrk, including influence maximization, network inference and competitive diffusion.
