Welcome to Data Mining Group at Northeastern University!
The Data Mining Group at Northeastern University was founded by Prof. Yizhou Sun, and now have 1 faculty, 4 PhD students, 1 visiting scholar, and several master students. Our research interest is on mining large-scale information and social networks, and more generally in data mining, database systems, statistics, machine learning, information retrieval, and network science, with a focus on modeling novel problems and proposing scalable algorithms for large-scale, real-world applications, including but not limited to: social computing, social media, business intelligence, medical and health informatics, and cyber-physical systems.
