I am a second-year PhD student in the School of Engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and a research assistant in the Social Computing group at Idiap Research Institute under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Gatica-Perez. I am also a member of Digital Humanities Institute at EPFL, and dhCenter, the UNIL-EPFL joint center for digital humanities. My academic research interest lies at the intersection of privacy, machine learning, and social network analysis. More specifically, I work on designing privacy-preserving representation learning algorithms for large-scale graphs such as social and information networks. I am keen to initiate any kind of academic collaborations, so if you have similar research interests, please feel free to drop me a message!
