The Data Science Research Group at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) of Stockholm University focuses on core data science resarch as well as on application areas where data science can assist in providing useful insights for decision making. The group focuses on the formulation of novel data science problems and the development of algorithmic methods and methodological workflows for achieving scalable solutions in core application areas within social sciences and humanities.
The group has three main focus research themes: sequential and temporal mining, explainable and federated learning, and machine learning applications. For a comprehensive list of our research topics please visit our research page.
