Brief Research Bio:

My research interest is in Computer Systems. My research lab primarily focuses on building systems that are high-performance, reliable, energy-efficient, and secure. The target environments and applications typically vary, ranging from desktop environments to high-performance servers to distributed (e.g., grid) environments.

While we typically focus on techniques that are application-independent, the systems we build are usually workload-aware, and continuously adapt to changes in both the system workload and operating environment. Our R&D environment is usually Linux.

Some of the current research projects include:

  • Block-level self-optimization in storage systems
  • Profiling and Prediction of [Grid] Application Resource Usage
  • External Caching in Energy-saving Storage Systems
  • Real-time Intrusion Detection inside the Operating System
  • Optimizing Storage Virtualization in Xen
  • A Parallel Real-Time Network Emulator using Virtual Machines

"I was able to develop quite a bit as a person, researcher, and professional."
Marlon Bright,
FIU student

"Being able to learn elements directly related to my project, the likes and dislikes of another culture, and be able to communicate in a different language are all aspects related to the PIRE program for which I will always be grateful."
Simone Pasmore,
FAU student

"It helps you build confidence that the degree you hold will enable you to tackle any problem, and, more importantly, it lets you experience the job before committing your life to it."
