Students who participate in my research group work on projects that are part of the Distributed Storage Systems project. During the fall and spring semesters, we have weekly research group meetings where we discuss our progress and learn about topics related to the project. In the summer, I have opportunities for students to work full-time on collaborative research projects.
If you are a Skidmore student who is interested in joining my research group, please visit me during office hours or send me an email.

Graph structured data is increasingly common in applications that collect and use big data: social networks, data provenance and lineage systems, scientific models and applications, and even in business applications that have traditionally used relational database systems. This research aims to establish a base of knowledge about how to store and query graph data in distributed systems, and how to evaluate various existing graph database systems.
