I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at RIT. My research interests include distributed platforms for Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and high-performance computing, emerging data analytics frameworks for machine learning, smarter cities, and cognitive systems, and middleware for block-chain technology. Prior to joining RIT, I have worked at IBM Research, NEC Labs and Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI). I am a Senior Member of the IEEE.

I currently have funding available for enthusiastic MS and PhD students in the areas of distributed systems, cloud computing, and high-performance computing systems. If you’re interested, then email me you CV and describe your area of interest and why are you interested in that specific domain.
