June 2016: We have openings for summer internships and for full-timeResearch Associate - Java Programmers to join the database group at USNA. Apply if interested!

September 2015: Rya is now an Apache Software Foundation incubator project!!! Here is the new home for Rya: Apache Rya (incubating).



My research lies at the intersection of databases and distributed systems, with a focus on finding information in dynamic, large, decentralized systems (designing efficient index structures and algorithms ). Another focus is on organizing, storing and ultimately processing different types of data (relational, XML, RDF, etc) Specific projects include building systems and algorithms for distributed data provenance to keep track of data as it is created, modified, and transmitted between multiple users/systems, and creating a distributed index for XML data to allow fast query processing for XPath queries.
