Currently working on social and mobile analytics. Particularly interested in problems regarding spatiotemporal analysis of user behavior and how that affects interaction amongst social peers.
Overall interest in problems related to web mining, web-scale data management, keyword based retrieval from databases and database ranking. Also, big data analytics, how to support learning and mining methods on a distributed data store and general distributed query optimization problems for big data processing.
Stelios Paparizos works as a Researcher for Search Labs at Microsoft Research. He got his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree from the University of Michigan working with Prof. H.V.Jagadish on XML query processing and optimization. His thesis work was a core piece of the Timber project, one of the first major systems offering native XML data management and query processing solutions. He also holds a master’s degree from Northeastern University in Boston and bachelor's from the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece. After joining Microsoft in 2006 he worked on structured data ranking, web-log mining and semantic query analysis. His work found its way in various components of the Bing search engine and also resulted in over 25 patent filings and a few key publications. More recently, his research focus is on social and mobile analytics, including personalized mining of social interactions.
