Welcome
I'm George Karypis, a Professor at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul and a member of the Digital Technology Center (DTC) at the University of Minnesota.
Research
My research interests are concentrated in the areas of bioinformatics, cheminformatics, data mining, and high-performance computing, and from time-to-time, I look at various problems in the areas of information retrieval, collaborative filtering, and electronic design automation for VLSI CAD.

Within these areas, my research focuses in developing novel algorithms for solving important existing and/or emerging problems, and on developing practical software tools implementing some of these algorithms. The results from this research have been presented in various conferences and published in leading peer reviewed journals and highly selective conference proceedings.

Education, Mentoring, and Advising
I take great joy in teaching, advising, and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students and I consider it to be one of the perks of my job.

My greatest pleasure and ultimate job satisfaction comes at those points during a course at which my students transition from simply listening and reading the material to actually understanding them, grasping them, internalizing them, and seeing how they fit within the general computer science discipline and how they are applied to solve real problems in real applications.
