Welcome!

We are the Network and Data Science (NDS) lab at Vanderbilt University, led by Tyler Derr. Our research lies in data mining and machine learning, especially deep learning on graphs, social network analysis, and data science for social good with applications in drug discovery, education, political science, and autism research.
