I have received numerous honors and awards, including a Fulbright Scholarship, a NSF Young Investigator Award in databases in 1994, and an Intel Young Investigator Engineering Award from the Engineering Foundation. I have been investigating database technology for non-conventional applications for over ten years. I am a member of IEEE and ACM. My teaching and research interests are in the areas of databases, information and software systems. In particular, currently on-going projects include continuous streaming data processing, large-scale data warehousing over dynamic and distributed information sources, data-centric web site management and web/XML middleware services, XML query optimization and XML query caching, middle layer transformation and information integration technology, database change management, large-scale information visualization and discovery, to just name a few. I'm running the Database Systems Research Group (DSRG) here at WPI.
