## Emotions in social networks: Distributions, patterns, and models.

Published in CIKM (Acceptance Rate 21%), 2017

Find how emotions vary across users, how they evolve, and how they are connected to social ties+the dual of structural balance (signed nodes instead of edges).

## Sentiment Prediction in Social Networks.

Published in ICDMW, 2018

An attempt to predict sentiments from network structure.

## Representing Networks with 3D Shapes.

Published in ICDM (Acceptance Rate 8.86%), 2018

A method to represent any network with a 3D shape. Shapes capture various network properties: isomorphic graphs = same shapes, different graphs (random graphs, dense graphs, etc.) have different shapes.

## Network Identification and Authentication.

Published in ICDM (Acceptance Rate 18.5%), 2019

Given an anonymized sampled graph, we can tell where it is sampled from, e.g., from Facebook, Twitter, or a fake graph.

## WebShapes: Network Visualization with 3D Shapes.

Published in WSDM , 2020

A web platform: WebShapes that enables researchers to visualize network data as customized 3D shapes.

## A Probabilistic Cascading Failure Model for Dynamic Operating Conditions.

Published in IEEE ACCESS, 2020

A cascading failure model that can quantify the impact of failed grid components on other components.

## SGCN: A Graph Sparsifier Based on Graph Convolutional Networks.

Published in PAKDD, 2020

A neural network graph sparsifier that sparsifies a graph by pruning some edges.

## Noise-Enhanced Community Detection.

Published in Hypertext (Best paper nominated), 2020

We show and prove that you can take any community detection method, add limited noise to the network before running it, and get better communities.

## Sentiment Paradoxes in Social Networks: Why Your Friends Are More Positive Than You?

Published in ICWSM, 2020

We identified five sentiment paradoxes at different network levels.

## The Spectral Zoo of Networks: Embedding and Visualizing Networks with Spectral Moments

Published in KDD (Acceptance Rate 17%), 2020

We build a spectral zoo of networks by representing graphs using the spectral moments of the random walk transition matrix P=AD^-1. Now graphs are just like animals in the zoo!
