- Undergraduate internships: I am not going to be admitting any interns for the foreseeable future. Please do not write to me about internship as I will not be able to respond to individual emails.
- Graduate students: I am going to be admitting a graduate student in the 2014-15 academic year. Please do not write to me about graduate applications as I will not be able to respond to individual emails. I choose students from the pool of applicants. Simply apply and indicate "database systems" as your area of interest.

My research is on data management. Although I have done work in basic database technologies such as query processing, transaction processing, and database integration, the main focus of my research follows two threads: (1) application of database technology to non-traditional data types, and (2) distributed & parallel data management.
