I have decades of research experience in databases, analytic systems, and machine learning. I got my PhD from the University of Maryland in Computer Science with a focus on graph databases and relational machine learning. I developed the Titan graph database (now called JanusGraph).
I have co-founded 4 companies including Aurelius which was acquired by DataStax in 2015. I am currently a Chief Technologist at DataStax.
I am a practitioner and lifelong student of team leadership.
