Hi! My name is Saravanan Thirumuruganathan (if you cannot figure out how to pronounce my name, dont worry - my nickname is Sara). I work as a scientist in the Data Analytics group at QCRI (Qatar Computing Research Institute).
I completed my PhD in University of Texas at Arlington where I worked with Dr.Gautam Das on diverse problems in hidden databases, sampling of graphs and crowdsourcing. I did my Masters also at University of Texas at Arlington. I worked with Dr.Manfred Huber on building Bayesian Networks from rules.
My research interests are in the broad areas of Data Mining, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. In QCRI, I work on novel problems in Data Cleaning and Big Data Analytics.
Keywords: Data Cleaning, Data Analytics, Data Exploration, Crowdsourcing, Social Networks, Data Mining, Machine Learning, Graph Analytics.
