Nitesh Chawla, Ph.D., Frank Freimann Collegiate Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering
I came to the U.S. in 1997 to pursue my Ph.D., following which my wife and I moved to Toronto for a career in retail risk management at CIBC. It was an exciting stint and we made wonderful friends, but I had to follow my passion to be an educator, researcher and entrepreneur. Now, I'm living my dream as a professor at Notre Dame and founder of Aunalytics, blessed with a wonderful family, brilliant colleagues, deep friendships, and thinking each day on how to be innovative and entrepreneurial to make an impact on Big Data for common good.
