I am working with Professor Jayavel Shanmugasundaram. My main areas of research 
are database systems and Internet data management, especially structured/unstructured 
queries over XML documents and information retrieval over Internet-attached databases 
(the deep web). I am currently working on
the Quark project.

   I am a member of Cornell database group.
