My current research is currently in the area of Exploratory Stream Analytics. The relevant projects I am working on are: Automated Application Composition (MARIO), Scenario Planning Advisor (SPA), compilation of rule specifications to stream processing graphs (part of the IBM Streams product as of 2016) and hypothesis generation. My research interests lie at the intersection of data management, AI and distributed systems. In my previous (PhD) life, I did a lot of work on scalable ontology systems.

I joined IBM in 2008, after receiving my PhD degree from the University of Maryland College Park. Before that, I received MSc and BS degrees from the Politehnica University of Bucharest, Romania.
