I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer-Science and Software Engineering at Concordia University in Montreal, and the head of the Concordia Data Systems (CoDS) lab. My research interests are in the broad areas of parallel/distributed systems, data management, and machine learning for developing scalable systems for big data. My current research focuses on the following areas:

  • Discovery and analytics on large datasets
  • Parallel query processing on large graphs and strings
  • Distributed and federated RDF engines for linked data
  • A unified infrastructure for cyber security applications
