I am a post-doctoral researcher at Penn Database Group and Prof. Zack Ives is my advisor.

I did my Ph.D. from Dept. of Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Jan 2007 - Aug 2011). Prof. James A. Hendler was my thesis advisor and I was affiliated to Tetherless World Constellation. I also collaborated with Prof. Mohammed J. Zaki from time to time.


The general focus of my research until now has been in -- efficient querying over graph databases (centralized and distributed), practical and theoretical aspects of join (conjunctive) query optimization, multi-query optimization etc.
I have also been getting more interested in the following topics -- Distributed Green clusters, Music mining, Information and coding theory.
