I am currently pursuing PhD and the title of my thesis is 'A Cloud-Based Framework for Big Data Analytics'. The main objectives of this research work include -

  • Study existing big data tools and techniques, with specific focus on cloud-based technologies.
  • Explore real-world applications of big data analytics using cloud-based technologies and identify potential ‘big’ datasets.
  • Propose a technological framework for performing big data analytics in the cloud environment.
  • Implement big data stack over the cloud platform.
  • Implement data analytics techniques over specific datasets using base technologies and use the different components in an integrated format to support diverse analytical applications.
