a Professor in the
Computer Science and Engineering
at the University of Minnesota, Twin
interests are in the areas of Operating Systems and Distributed Systems.
I co-lead the
Distributed Computing Systems Group in the department.
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 recent years has been on designing and optimizing systems for
geo-distributed data analytics,
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 recently served as the Program Co-chair for
IEEE IC2E 2018 and ACM HPDC 2018 conferences. I was also the TPC Vice Co-chair for the Edge Computing Track for IEEE ICDCS 2018.
