I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Oregon State University. I am a member of the Information and Data Management and Analysis working under the supervision of Arash Termehchy. The focus of my research is Data Retrieval where I work on increasing the effectiveness of obtaining data from a database management system.


My current project is about analyzing the effectiveness of data retrieval based on different parameters such as structure of data, data-set size and importance of data items. I also work on software development projects related to the above topics.
