I am a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I received my B.S. degree from King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in 2012, a Master's degree from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, New Jersey, in 2016; all in Computer Science. My research interests are in the areas of big databases. In particular, currently on-going projects include big time series analytics, indexing large-scale data over distributed environments, query processing and optimization, to just name a few. I am a member of the Database Systems Research Group(DSRG) at (WPI) and advised by Prof. Elke A. Rundensteiner.
