I joined the Department of Engineering at Arizona State University Polytechnic in Fall 2010 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to joining ASU, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. I also worked in the industry for 5 years as a Software Engineer at SAP Labs India and Tyler Technologies in Plano, TX.
My primary research focuses on semantics-based approaches for Web service description, discovery & composition, use of semantic technologies to perform effective searches and information processing in various application areas such as handling heterogeneity & diversity in Big Data, representation of knowledge around outcome-based instruction design in STEM education, and semantic tagging in a collaborative bookmarking environment. She also works on Software Engineering Education research that focuses on experimenting various delivery models in project-centric courses.
