I am currently the Data Science Task Manager and Associate Scientist at UARC, University of California Santa Cruz working in the Data Sciences group at NASA Ames Research Center, California. Most of my current research effort is directed towards developing large scale data mining and machine learning algorithms to solve problems in the earth sciences, aviation safety, computational sustainability, and graph structure analysis.

I graduated with a PhD in Computer Science from University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2009. My PhD research, guided by Dr. Hillol Kargupta, focused on developing a game-theoretic framework for privacy preserving distributed data mining.
