Bio
I am an associate professor of Computer Engineering at Iowa State University. I am a part of the Software Engineering Faculty and hold a courtesy appointment in the Computer Science department. I received a B.Tech. in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras in 1996, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brown University in 2002. During 2009 and 2010, I worked as a Consulting Member of Technical Staff at Oracle Corporation.In the summer of 2013, I was a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge. Our group’s research is centered on the foundations of large-scale data analysis. We develop algorithms for large-scale data stream processing, and large-scale batch processing. I am also interested in applications of data analytics to cybersecurity and transportation. Our research has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA), IBM Corporation, and Northrop Grumman Corporation. I have received the IBM Faculty Award twice, in 2014 and in 2013, and the Warren B. Boast Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2012.
