About me

I am a PhD student at the data-intensive systems group in the Department of Computer Science, which is part of the Faculty of Science, one of Aarhus University's faculties. I am working under the supervision of Prof. Christian S. Jensen on an EU project called Reduction .

I recently completed my Masters program at Uppsala University, Sweden. My thesis titled Frequent Route Based Continuous Moving Object Location and Density Prediction on Road Networks was done under the co-supervision of Prof. Tore Risch at Uppsala Database Laboratory (UDBL) and Gyozo Gidofalvi from GeoInformatics Division at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. In 2000, I graduated with a B.E. Engineering (Hons) in Computer Systems Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.

Prior to my Masters I have worked for nearly 9 years in the I.T industry, primarily at ORACLE Utilities as a senior systems architect.
