Dafna Shahaf is an assistant professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dafna’s research deals with making sense of massive amounts of data. She designs algorithms that help people understand the underlying structure of complex topics, connect the dots between pieces of information, and turn data into insight. She is especially interested in unlocking the potential of the many digital traces left by human activity to understand and emulate human characteristics (e.g., creativity). Previously, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Microsoft Research and Stanford University. Dafna’s work has received multiple awards, including Best Research Paper at KDD’17 and KDD’10 and the IJCAI Early Career Award. She holds a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University.
