About me

I recent graduated with a PhD in Computer Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University. My PhD faculty advisor was Prof. Srikanta Tirthapura. The general focus of my research was "Real Time Analytics from Large Distributed Data". As a graduate student, I was the recipient of IBM PhD Fellowship for two consecutive years 2013-14 and 2014-15. I also received Research Excellence Award from the Graduate College, Iowa State University. I completed my Bachelor's of Technology (B.Tech) from the Department of Information Technology at National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, India, in 2008. I worked for 2 years in IBM India as a Systems Engineer, before joining the PhD program in Iowa State University.

Here is my CV.

Research Work

My research interest is on real time data analytics from large scale distributed data. Specifically, the goal of my PhD research was to design, implement and evaluate low cost algorithms to identify events/patterns and / or compute statistical aggregates from large distributed data in real time.
My research projects are:

  • Design and Implement algorithms to identify Quantiles from a Union of Historical and Streaming Data in Real Time
  • Design and Implement algorithms to identifying Persistent Items from large distributed data stream in real time.
  • Implement and perform experimental evaluation of Distinct Counting Algorithms for Data Stream.


  • “Estimating Quantiles from a Union of Historical and Streaming data”, Sneha Aman Singh, Divesh Srivastava and Srikanta Tirthapura (submitted to a conference)
  • "An Evaluation of Streaming Algorithms for Distinct Counting over a Sliding Window", Sneha Aman Singh and Srikanta Tirthapura, Frontiers in ICT, Volume 2, October 2015


  • IBM PhD Fellowship, 2013-14 and 2014-15
  • ISU Research Excellence Award, 2015
