sample imageMahesh B. Chaudhari is a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in the Division of Mathematical and Natural Sciences at Arizona State University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Arizona State University in May 2011. He also has M.S. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Mississippi State University in 2003 and B.E. degree in Computer Engineering from University of Mumbai in 1999.

After getting his Bachelor's degree, Mahesh joined ADA Lab at the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai (IIT) in 1999 as a software engineer. From 1999 to 2001, he was involved in developing a Maintenance Simulator and a Resource Management System using C++ and Java with Oracle 8i as the database management system. After finishing his M.S. in 2003 at Mississippi State University, Mahesh worked with Dr. K. R. Reddy at the SPAR Facility, Mississippi State University. At the SPAR facility, from 2003 to 2004, he focused on developing a system handling real-time events and data streams from a set of ten outdoor naturally-lit chambers, with computer control of the environmental factors. He joined the Division of Mathematical and Natural Sciences at Arizona State University as post-doctoral research assistant in June 2011 after earning his Ph.D. in May 2011.

His research interests include Multiple Query Optimization (MQO), incremental maintenance of materialized views over distributed heterogeneous data sources, and Object-Relational databases. He has teaching experience as an instructor for CS2 course (ACO 102) in Fall 2011, Spring 2009, and Fall 2008. Also, he has been assisting Dr. Suzanne W. Dietrich in enhancing and developing undergraduate database classes for the Applied Computing Program in the Division of Mathematical and Natural Sciences.

He has successfully completed the 2-year Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) program, a nationally recognized professional development program for doctoral students, interested in pursuing a faculty position upon graduation. He is recognized as the PFF Emeriti Fellow for the academic year of 2009-2010. He is a member of the ACM, the ACM Special Interest Group on the Management of Data (SIGMOD), the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE), and IEEE.
