Research Interests

My research focus is on creating cloud computing technologies that manage and provide tools for multi disciplinary experts to collaborate and share knowledge to solve real-life problems inscience and engineering. In addition, I am also interested in developing web-based work flows that will enable experts to gain more understanding and meaning from the emerging Big Data generated from scientific experiments.​
