About me


I am a Computer Science Ph.D. graduate from Decentralized Information Group at MIT CSAIL. I was supervised by Sir. Tim Berners-Lee and Lalana Kagal.

My PhD research was on social systems on the Web augmented with provenance, policy expressions and Linked Data. I also worked on using MIT App Inventor to make disaster management applications.

I now work at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as the Director of Health Data Research at the Institute for Data Exploration and Analytics. Please visit me at my Rensselaer home page.
