I am currently in the Bing organization of Microsoft working in the Geospatial area. In 2013, we shipped two versions of the Win 8.1 Maps apps - 2D Maps and 3D Maps.

I moved to the West Coast in 2005 — In 2007, I joined Nokia Research Center after spending almost 2 years at a startup — Metaweb Technologies. At Nokia, I am working in an incubator group that is exploring and developing new Internet Services and Solutions in the Mobile, Collaboration, and Business Enterprise spaces. Prior to this position, I worked at Metaweb Technologies developing UI, AJAX technologies, and applications for Semantic Web. A showcase product called Freebase has recently become publicly visible.

  • An approach to broad-based accessibility for graphical applications using the Eclipse f ramework and AspectJ (aspect-oriented programming).
  • Web accessibility scaffoldings that enable seniors to learn skills to function online with greater autonomy.
  • Web-based knowledge sharing and social interaction portals (CHIplace and Portkey) for members to meet, network, and share tacit knowledge and experiences.
  • Social browsers (e.g., People browser, and Conversation browser) that enable participants to explore relationships between people and discussions.
  • New paradigms for Web-based collaboration (concept demo ~5M).
  • Web-based customer-relationship management.
  • Forms abstraction toolkit recast as a Web technology.
  • Video-based background awareness tool, known as NYNEX Portholes.
