I am a Principal Member of Technical Staff at Sandia National Labs, Livermore in the Information Security Sciences department. My work is primarily focussed on mathematical foundations of big data problems. I am very interested in applying theoretical computer science methods (especially random sampling and sublinear algorithms) to real-world problems involving massive data sets.

How to build formal models of large data, with provable properties? How to design algorithms under severe memory or time constraints? How to infer properties of a large data set by looking at a tiny fraction of it? How to algorithmically exploit the peculiar properties of massive real-world datasets? My research revolves around these questions.

Eric Blais, Sourav Chakraborty, and I started a blog called Property Testing Review. It's mostly a monthly digest of property testing papers, and we're working on getting more content. Suggestions welcome!
