I am an assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois (UIUC) . My research interests are broadly in simplifying and improving data analytics, i.e., helping users make better use of their data.
My work involves building real data analytics systems with principled foundations, designing algorithms (with formal guarantees) for the systems, as well as mining data obtained from such systems.
Aditya Parameswaran is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Illinois (UIUC). He is currently spending the year visiting MIT CSAIL and Microsoft Research NE, after completing his Ph.D. from Stanford University in Sept. 2013, advised by Prof. Hector Garcia-Molina. He is broadly interested in data analytics, with research results in human computation, visual analytics, information extraction and integration, and recommender systems.
Aditya is a recipient of the Arthur Samuel award for the best dissertation in Computer Science at Stanford (2013), the SIGMOD Jim Gray dissertation award (2014), the Key Scientific Challenges Award from Yahoo! Research (2010), two best-of-conference citations (VLDB 2010 and KDD 2012), the Terry Groswith graduate fellowship at Stanford (2007), and the Gold Medal in Computer Science at IIT Bombay (2007).
I am currently serving on or have served on the Program Committees of: VLDB 2013-14, WWW 2014, SIGMOD 2014-15, SOCC 2014, HCOMP 2014, ICDE 2014, and EDBT 2014.
