Xiaohan Zhao

I am a Postdoc in the Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. I work in the SAND Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Ben Y. Zhao. I received my PhD degree from the same department in Dec. 2014.

My research interest lies in analyzing, processing, and modeling large complex networks, such as online social networks, mobile networks, and data center networks. I am also working on privacy and security problems in large complex networks.

My recent projects focus on graph coordinate systems (i.e. graph processing systems), dynamic graph analysis and models, privacy and security problems in graph sharing, and analysis of different complex networks. The details of these projects can be found here, and my publications are listed here.
