Hi. My name is Abolfazl Asudeh. This is my last year as a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Gautam Das as my Ph.D. advisor and to be a member of Database Exploration Lab (DBXLAB). My research is around database and data mining algorithms, including Big data Top-k Exploration, Deep Web, Crowdsourcing, and Graph Analytic. I received my M.Sc. in Computer Engineering - Software from the Computer Engineering department at Sharif University of Technology in 2008. My erdös number is 3.
