My research interests include the design, analysis and implementation of machine learning algorithms and approaches to solve real-world problems in the fields of data mining, information retrieval and knowledge discovery. In particular, I am interested in the design and the application of scalable machine learning algorithms that are faster, data efficient and less demanding in computational resources to handle large scale problems with different data characateristics.
