Liu and colleagues awarded NSF Grant

Alex Liu,Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, and colleagues have been awarded a research grant from the National Science Foundation for a multidisciplinary project titled "Signal Processing and Information Theoretic Approaches to Denoising and Demystifying Social Network Services". This project is joint collaboration with Hayder Radha (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and Cliff Lampe (Telecommunication & Media).

The objective of this project is to develop in‐depth understanding of the nature, underlying models, and dynamics of Social Network Services (SNS) with millions and even billions of users. Methods for the analysis of massive SNS graphs using signal processing and information‐theoretic techniques are being designed to answer fundamental questions regarding SNS.
