About me


I am a PhD student and a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at 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. In 2010, I joined Iowa State University as a direct entry PhD student. I worked in IBM from 2008 to 2010 as an Associate Systems Engineer.

Research Work


My faculty advisor is Prof. Srikanta Tirthapura. My research interest is based on real time data analytics. My current work aims at designing and implementing a low cost algorithm that monitors massive distributed/single stream to estimate aggregates and identify anomalies from the stream in real time. I can summarize my research interests as follows:

  • Massive Data Streams Monitoring and Processing
  • Large Scale Data Management in Real Time
  • Distributed and Randomized Algorithms

My current projects are:

  • Online Detection of Anomalies from Distributed Streams - Designing a low cost algorithm for identifying persistent items from distributed datastreams.
  • Implementing a distinct count operator for large datastreams that would compute distinct number of elements in the stream.

More details on the project "Identifying Anomalies/Patterns from Distributed Streams can be found " here.
