Research Interests

 

High-Performance Computing, Cloud Computing

 

I am interested in all aspects of high-performance computing, but especially parallel and distributed systems, and cloud computing. My research program centers on systems software (OS, VMs, parallel programming) and, most recently, high-performance data transfers and IaaS cloud computing.
