My main research interests are in the areas of Operating Systems and Distributed Systems. My research has focused on resource management and performance in distributed systems, such as Clouds, Data centers, Grids, and Mobile platforms, with the goal of achieving higher reliability, scalability, and manageability. Much of my focus in the recent years has been on geo-distributed computing, interactions of mobile computing (and now IoT) with the cloud, and data analytics in the cloud. Currently, I am working on a number of projects related to these systems, involving issues in data-intensive computing, mobile-cloud interactions, and social computing.
I co-lead the Distributed Computing Systems Group in the department. More details can be found about my Research including some of my current and recent projects, along with a complete list of Publications (generally more up-to-date). More information can be found about my Teaching including recents courses and my current and past students, and Service including my recent professional activities.
