He has published or presented more than 100 papers and book chapters in various aspects of data science, including data mining, data modeling, data communications, data compression, data presentation, data retrieval, data indexing, data querying, and data fusion. 

Kennesaw State’s Office of Research is highlighting the research of department chairs and directors during the current season of Research with Relevance throughout the spring semester.
