Tina Eliassi-Rad is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Northeastern University. She is also on the faculty of the Network Science Institute. Prior to joining Northeastern, Tina was an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Rutgers University; and before that a Member of Technical Staff and Principal Investigator at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
She earned her PhD in Computer Sciences (with a minor in Mathematical Statistics) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research is rooted in data mining and machine learning, and spans theory, algorithms, and applications of massive data from networked representations of physical and social phenomena.
Tina’s work has been applied to personalized search on the World-Wide Web, statistical indices of large-scale scientific simulation data, fraud detection, and cyber situational awareness. Her algorithms have been incorporated into systems used by the government and industry (e.g., IBM System G Graph Analytics) as well as open-source software (e.g., Stanford Network Analysis Project). In 2010, she received an Outstanding Mentor Award from the US DOE Office of Science.
