I am currently working in the area of Streams Processing (part of the Exploratory Stream Processing Systems department). I am currently working on Automated Application Composition (MARIO), compilation of rule specifications to stream processing graphs and hypothesis generation. My research interests lie at the intersection of data management, AI and distributed systems. In my previous (PhD) life, I did a lot of work on scalable ontology systems.
I joined IBM in 2008, after receiving my PhD degree from the University of Maryland College Park. Before that, I received MSc and BS degrees from the Politehnica University of Bucharest, Romania.
