I received my B.Tech. in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 1996, and my Ph.D., also in Computer Science, from Brown University in 2002, under the supervision of Prof. Maurice Herlihy. In the summer of 2013, I visited Microsoft Research, Cambridge working on Algorithms and Systems for Big Data Analytics. In 2009 and 2010, I worked as a Consulting Member of Technical Staff at Oracle Corporation. I have published more than 70 papers in top-tier conferences and journals in databases, distributed systems, and algorithms and hold five US patents in the area of data mining and distributed systems.
I received the IBM Faculty Award twice, in 2014 and in 2013, and the Warren B. Boast Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2012.
I am looking for two PhD students and one post-doc to work on Research Projects on Data Stream Analytics. These positions are fully funded. Potential PhD candidates need to have a strong background in discrete mathematics, algorithms, and programming. Candidates for the post-doc position need to have a PhD in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related areas. Please contact me by email if you are interested in these openings.
I am interested in designing algorithms and software for analysis of massive data sets. In particular, I work on developing methods for real-time analysis of large data streams. Current projects:
In the Spring semester, I usually teach SE/CprE 419: Software Tools for Large Scale Data Analysis, and its associated laboratory. This is a practice-oriented course that introduces the student to software techniques for large scale data analysis, including the "Hadoop" stack of software, and tools for Streaming Data Analysis.
Each year, I also teach a graduate level course CprE 528: "Probabilistic Methods in Computer Engineering"
