Welcome to the DATA Lab at the  Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University.

Our group is interested in studying, understanding, and modeling large-scale data. 

We focus on  problems involving massive graphs (GATA); including link analysis, pattern discovery, outlier/anomaly/fraud/event/outbreak detection. 

Our goal is to develop algorithms and scalable analytics for mining & learning  from (graph) data.   


Research Areas

  • Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
