Research Expertise

Data Analytics | Machine Learning | Algorithm Design and Analysis

My research focus is on the design of algorithms and software systems for machine learning and data analytics. I have published over 15 papers in machine learning in international conferences and journals. Presently, I am the Technical Lead and co-PI of the Perka First Data-Rowan CS Lab, an innovative industry academia collaboration where Perka engineers work closely with faculty and students to develop active production software. At present I am establishing a lab with a focus on data analytics using deep neural networks. I am the co-PI of a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop materials for an undergraduate curriculum for algorithms design and NP-Completeness. Over the past four years, I have served as co-PI in projects funded by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Mission Solutions Engineering and have been involved in nine external grants and contracts exceeding $750,000.
