About Me

I am currently a researcher in the Department of Systems Research at NEC Laboratories America. I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Santa Barbara. My advisors are Prof. Ambuj K. Singh and Prof. Xifeng Yan.

I am interested in data mining and management problems. My recent research work focuses on mining and managing large-scale heterogeneous temporal graphs for real-life applications, such as cybersecurity, system performance analysis, online social networks, cloud datacenters, stream processing systems, mobile networks, and many others.

Here is my CV.
