Visiting Associate Professor of Computer Science



For the AY 2018/19, I am joining the CS department at University of Southern California as Visiting Associate Professor. I am currently on sabbatical leave from the Department of Computer Science at University of Massachusetts, Boston (UMB), where I hold a tenured Associate Professor position. Prior to joining UMB in Fall 2011, I was a Research Associate at the Purdue Cyber Center and Purdue Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security (CERIAS).

I hold a PhD Degree (2008) from the Computer Science department at School of Computing, National University of Singapore. I obtained a BS Degree in Computer Science from "Politehnica" University of Bucharest, Romania, in 2003.

Research Summary

My main research interests lie in the area of databases, with focus on information security and privacy. I am also interested in spatio-temporal databases and data management in large-scale distributed environments.
