I taught at Emmanuel College for fourteen years before enrolling for my PhD at WPI. I intend to return to the academia and resume teaching computer science courses after my graduation. My research work focuses on Big Data mining, in particular time series similarity exploration and knowledge discovery. I am a person of two cultures, which allows me to understand each better and embrace the best of both. I value multicultural experiences and interdisciplinary approaches to education and research.
