|My name is
Hossam Sharara, a PhD graduate from the Computer
Science Dept. at the University of Maryland,
College Park. I am mainly interested in
machine learning, data mining and relational
learning, in the theory behind and various
My primary research interests are in machine learning and data mining in relational domains. My dissertation focuses on reasoning in dynamic, multi-modal, multi-relational networks. During the course of my doctoral research, I have investigated a number of aspects related to complex information networks, including network evolution, multi-relational clustering, characterizing interactions among multiple entity types, and their effect on information diffusion and influence analysis in multi-modal settings (Please check my list of publications for further details). My advisor is Prof. Lise Getoor, and I belong to the LINQS research group at the University of Maryland.
I am originally from Egypt and I hold two M.sc. degrees in Data mining techniques in Computer Science from both the University of Maryland, College Park and Alexandria University, Egypt.
