Dr. Jimeng Sun (Ph.D. CMU-CSD 2007) attracted the runner-up award for the best SIGKDD dissertation. Jimeng’s dissertation is on tensor and stream mining, proposing novel and efficient methods to handle streams of numerical data, as well as streams of graphs.

He applied his methods on chlorine monitoring in the drinking water (joint project with Prof. Jeanne VanBriesen of CIT/CMU), on monitoring the self-star data center of PDL/CMU (with Prof. Greg Ganger and his group), and also on monitoring computer traffic (with Prof. Hui Zhang, SCS/CMU)

Jimeng will receive a plaque and will be recognized during the award ceremonies at the upcoming ACM SIGKDD Conference in August 24-27.
Furthermore, he will present his work during the conference. The ACM SIGKDD conference is the most selective and prestigious data mining conference.

Warmest congratulations, Jimeng!
