My research is focused on fundamental and applied data management with special interest in Data-driven Decision-making Systems (DDSs), i.e., systems that automate the process of decision-making based on data. Toward this end, my long-term research objective is to introduce novel solutions for all components of the DDS data management cycle (namely, data collection, transfer, preprocessing, storage for querying, analysis and mining, visualization, and actuation) under various combinations of the Big Data V3 challenges relevant for the desired DDS applications. In the past, I have worked on a number of DDSs from various application areas (including, health, energy, safety and security, transportation, and scientific computing). My research has been supported by grants from both governmental agencies (NSF/CENS, NIH/CTSI, DOT/METRANS, DOJ/NIJ, NASA/JPL) and industry (Google, IBM, Chevron, NGC).
