Ben McCamish is a graduate student in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s Ph.D. program at Oregon State University. He received his B.S. in Computer Science from Washington State University Vancouver in 2013 and his M.S. in Computer Science at Oregon State University in 2015. His current research projects involve the analysis of databases produced by PMUs. Mr. McCamish’s research interests lie in the area of Large Database Management, Database Systems, Artificial Intelligence, and the Smart Grid.
Currently Ben's work involves improving data management and analytics using game theoretical methods. The idea is to improve the relationship between user and database allowing for each to learn from one another, improving query accuracy.

My co-advisor at Oregon State University and P.I.. Currently we are installing a PMU network on campus. Using the data it produces we are developing new ways to efficiently query large and frequently updated databases.
My co-advisor at Oregon State University. Currently our work is focussed on applying game theory techniques to database indexes to better inform the database and user about each other, improving query accuracy.
My former advisor and P.I. at Washington State University and continued mentor.
