profile


I am the manager of the Data-Intensive Systems and Analytics Group at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. I am also the development manager of the IBM Streams SPL Language, Compiler, Programming Model and Research Team, IBM Analytic Platform. The combined team currently engages in the research and product development of the IBM Streams product -- a real-time Big-Data software platform for scalable distributed stream processing -- focusing on the research and development of SPL-related components.  In addition, we study various research issues in Big Data systems and analytics -- including programming language and model for stream processing; automatic exploitation of data parallelism for streaming applications; fault-tolerance and application resiliency in stream computing; advanced graph analytic algorithms for stream applications; parallel streaming algorithms for exploiting multicore processors; job management and scheduling, resource management and system optimization for Big Data systems.

An IBM Master Inventor, I am also a Fellow of the IEEE, and a member of the ACM. From 2000 to 2004, I was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering. I also served as an organizing or program committee member for many international conferences and workshops. I have received several IBM awards, including an IBM Corporate Environmental Affair Excellence Award, an Outstanding Technical Achievement Award, a Research Division Award, and many Invention Achievement Awards. I have published extensively in various journals and refereed conferences, and received several best paper awards. I also hold or have applied for over 75 patents.
