Graduate Student
Department of Computer Science and Engineering

Karsten Steinhaeuser, whose research interests include high-performance data mining, learning from datasets, and parallel and distributed learning algorithms, is scheduled to complete his third degree, a doctorate, from Notre Dame this fall.

Steinhaeuser already holds a bachelor’s (2005) and a master’s degree (2007) in computer science and engineering from the University. Since July 2008, he has worked as an intern at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and is developing computational analysis methods for climate data to gain a better understanding of climate change and how it could impact the environment, population, and human health.

His most recent research centers on data mining, and more specifically on the analysis of complex networks and on studying the relationships within groups such as social networks, disease interactions, and the global climate system.
