I'm currently a committer on the Apache Knox Project. I believe security is a critical part of the Hadoop ecosystem and Knox helps to provide that functionality. You can see the my projects page for my other projects on GitHub.

I am currently a student studying Computer Science and Computer Engineering at Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick. Expected Graduation: 2018.

My current research is in the area of distributed machine learning. I am mainly focused on the efficacy of a dictionary learning algorithm termed Cloud K-SVD which is being implemented and used in conjunction with a small cluster of Raspberry Pi computers.
