Broadly speaking, my research interests lie at the intersection of the following research areas: database systems, distributed systems, information visualization, information security and cloud computing.

In particular, my research interests revolve around building database systems for emerging applications. Fashionably called Big Data systems, these database systems can handle huge amount of data in a scalable and fault-tolerant manner. They provide capabilities for scalable information retrieval and data analytics to support data-driven decision making.
