Professor of Data Science

My research covers data science from method development to applications. The most important fields I have developed methods for are matrix and tensor decompositions over non-standard algebras, redescription mining, and analysis of social networks. Their applications range from data mining, ecological niche modelling, the analysis of parliamentary candidates' opinions, and the analysis of voluntary-based network services to health data analysis.
