Curriculum Vitae

My research explores various interconnected systems ranging from tightly-coupled high performance computing systems to resource-constrained wireless sensor networks to dynamically evolving social networks. I am currently investigating emerging issues of efficiently handling big data while protecting privacy and security on these systems in the age of analytics.
