About Me
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management Science and Systems (MSS), School of Management, State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, NY. I am also a core faculty member of the Computational and Data Enabled Science and Engineering (CDSE) Program at UB. Prior to my current appointment I served as an Associate Research Scientist at the Center for Computational Learning Systems (CCLS) at Columbia University, NY. where I headed the Scalable Analytics Research Group.

My research broadly focuses on machine learning, distributed optimization and large scale distributed and parallel mining. However, my primary focus is in a relatively new sub-field of machine learning called Consensus Based Machine Learning. The federal government and several industry partners have generously funded my research including the National Science Foundation, National Endowment of Humanities, Amazon Web Services, EMC, Mathworks Inc, Epilepsy Research Foundation and the Consolidated Edison Company of New York.

Teaching
I teach two courses in the School of Management at UB: (a) MGS 655: Distributed Computing and Big Data Technologies (Sections F1S, F2S and F3S, a core course for students in the MIS program) (b) MGS 662: Optimization Methods for Machine Learning (an analytics course that serves as an elective for students from various disciplines including MIS, MBA, Mathematics, Economics, Industrial Engineering, Data Science, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and other related disciplines in SEAS).
I have been an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Columbia University and taught an 'An Introduction to Distributed Data Mining' in Spring 2011 and 2012.
I have also taught 'Distributed Data Mining' at IIIT-Delhi in Spring 2013.
