Mohsen Shahriari is working as a research assistant at the Chair of Computer Science 5 at RWTH-Aachen university since January 15 2014. His research involves exploring novel structural and contextual approaches of discovering overlapping community structures in time evolving social media. Moreover, he is investigating communities to identify hidden processes behind their evolution patterns. The found dynamics and processes can be applied on community-aware application domains. In fact, the research is very much involved with (overlapping) community detection, evolution and their applications such as (expert) recommendation systems. Moreover, he is involved in Learning Layers project. Learning Layers is a large-scale research project co-funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme. The consortium consists of 17 institutions from 7 different countries. In this project, he is mainly responsible for developing RESTful Web services to support informal learning environments such as health care and construction clusters. The REST-based Web services include Expert Recommender and Overlapping Community Detection algorithms.
