My research focuses on how to make use of data and information in an effective manner, towards achieving goals in business, scientific discovery, health services, or in personal endeavors. With the inter-connectivity of the internet, the availability of computing power, and big data everywhere, access to the right piece of information at the right moment, possibly fused together from numerous information sources, remains one of the most critical capabilities that can set you apart from others. Together with undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and other faculty, we strive to develop database, data mining and data visualization technologies to detect and explore important nuggets and patterns in massive data streams in real-time. Applications we target include fraud detection, medical tracking, emergency management, business intelligence, and event analytic. I love every moment working together with students and colleagues at WPI and in industry on these cutting edge data science research and project activities. At the undergraduate level, I work with students both on MQP and IQP project focused on core computer science research challenges as well as on company-sponsored projects. In my spare time I like to travel, yoga and aerobics, and tinker with my flower and vegetable garden.
