My areas of interest span Operating Systems and Distributed Systems. Within these disciplines, I work mainly in the areas of resource management, scheduling, and performance analysis. I am interested in performance issues in a variety of distributed systems: Clouds, Volunteer Grids, Data centers, and Mobile platforms. The key focus of my work has been to provide system support for data- and compute-intensive applications, and to make these systems scalable, self-managing, and reliable.

A complete list of my publications is available here. Please note that this list is generally more up-to-date than the list of projects below.


Currently, I am working on a number of projects involving data-intensive computing and user-cloud interactions. Some of my current projects include:
