Research Staff Member
Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY USA



A passionate computer coder with in-depth knowledge of Data Mining, Text Mining, Natural Language Processing, Database, High Performance Big Data Computing (GPU + Hadoop + Spark), Applied Statistics

I did my PhD and PostDoc from NUS-Singapore, and was working as a faculty at IIT-Roorkee before coming to IBM YKT.

My earlier research was generally in the areas of large-scale data analysis for knowledge discovery. Fundamentally, my overall research goal is to develop scalable algorithms and systems to enable efficient knowledge discovery over dynamic, heterogeneous, and massive-scale complex data, such as interval data, time series data, spatial data, spatiotemporal data, social network data, and many more.


At IIT, I started working on Text Data, news media analysis, GPU computing. I setup an NVIDIA researchcenter at IIT-Roorkee.

@YKT, I am developing Spark-ML based algorithm for failure prediction in time series data.
