My current research interests include modeling of big data and its applications, large-scale network dynamics, cloud computing and search over encryption, optimization algorithms, network security, and wireless networks. I am particularly interested in algorithmic problems and mathematical modeling arising from practical applications, including wireless sensor networks, computational medicine, networking, and online social networks. I studied computational complexity theory from late 1980's to early 2000's, including structural complexity, average-case complexity, and average NP-completeness.

The Path to Greatness -- by Bill Hybels

In each heart is a built-in mechanism that craves self-promotion and advancement, the climb of ego. Our role models and heroes reinforce the theme: Ascend and flex the muscles of your self-will. Do whatever it takes to conquer gravity. Whether you do it blatantly or wear the disguise of humility, make yourself upwardly mobile. Why? Because that is the direction of greatness.

Philippians 2 said: If you want to be truly great, then the direction you must go is down. You must descend into greatness. At the heart of this paradox is still another paradox: Greatness is not a measure of self-will, but rather self-abandonment. The more you lose, the more you gain.
