I have recently started working on network science aspects of social networks. With Sushant Khopkar (PhD student) and Prof. Alex Nikolaev (UB) we have proposed a new social network model that spans small world through scale-free networks.
I also work on fast, approximate and incremental centrality metric calculations.
I am also working on Influence Maximization and Viral Marketing.
