Distributed Systems (CS 454/654)
CS 848 -- Large Scale Data Management: focused on research problems related to managing data in the cloud and on modern hardware.
I am a member of the Data Systems Research Group. In general, I am interested in systems-oriented research. Some
specific topics I am interested in are:
Associate Editor: Large-scale data management
Scalability and performance
System reliability and availability
