I am currently 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, and social network 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.
My research interests include
- Anomaly detection in multivariate time series
- Parallel and distributed algorithms
- Graph mining for social network analysis
- Sparse learning for terascale/petascale data sets
