Michalis Vlachos

My research interests span in the areas of data mining, information retrieval and data visualization. Since 2008 I am with the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory. Before, I was a research staff member at IBM Research, NY. I also visited briefly Microsoft Research. My work has been supported by a Marie-Curie IRG grant and an ERC Starting Grant.

All models are wrong, but some are useful.
