List of Present and Past Graduate Students and Research Staffs

I am delighted to work with some great bunch of students and research assistants. I supervise at most 4 PhDs simultaneously. My modus operandi is to work with a small group of students and research assistants and ensure that they are involved in quality research that leads to publications in highly competitive and prestigious venues. If you are a bright, curious, highly motivated, and technically strong candidate and wish to do some innovative cutting-edge research in the area of data management and analytics then email me with your detailed CV and transcripts of your undergraduate study.
