Faculty Profile

Dr. Asim Karim

Professor

Department Of Comp. Scienc

Dr. Karim holds a B.Sc. degree from UET Lahore and a doctorate from The Ohio State University (OSU). Before joining LUMS in 2002, he worked as a research associate in the Knowledge Engineering Lab at OSU. Dr. Karim is an internationally recognized researcher in the areas of data mining, machine learning, and applied artificial intelligence. He has authored over 50 articles at leading venues including two books and 19 journal articles. At LUMS, Dr. Karim has been instrumental in developing and strengthening the graduate program in data mining and machine learning. He is founding director of the Knowledge and Data Engineering Lab, which is the center of his research activities.  The lab’s recent publication venues include ICDM, CIKM, PAKDD, and COLING.. Dr. Karim has supervised four PhD graduates in the data mining/machine learning area.
