As the Director of Research, he leads several research initiatives in the broader area of cyber physical systems and big data across three centers within IRI. He is also the Managing Site Director of NSF CVDI – an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center in the area of big data. His research interest is in the broader area of cyber physical systems – specifically addressing real-world informatics and integrated systems modeling issues. He has led various efforts in the area of big data platforms, system resilience, modeling & verification of distributed systems, software defined networks, visual analytics, and evolutionary networks. His research has generated over $7M in funding from various state and federal agencies including NSF, DHS S&T, DOE, state agencies, and the private sector. He has 15 peer-reviewed conference/journal publications, 2 U.S. Patents, and authored several technical reports. He is also part of the US Ignite community leadership group and representative from the city of Lafayette. He has also served on various conference program, and review committees. Most recently he served as the Industry sponsorship chair for the 1st and 2nd IEEE International Conference on Big Data, and is invited to serve as the workshop chair for the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM) 2017.
