Research Interests

Dr. Zhao’s research is in the areas of computer systems, with a focus on distributed/grid computing, virtualization, high-performance systems, and autonomic computing. He is particularly interested in addressing the challenging problems of data and resource management in large-scale systems, as well as the interdisciplinary studies which bridge computer systems research and other domains such as computational sciences.

Today's large distributed applications require tremendous amounts of data and resources, supported by computer systems with increasing scale, complexity, and dynamism. It is often difficult to make effective use of resources and execute applications with desired quality-of-service in such environments. His goal is to explore novel data and resource management solutions, using grid, virtualization and autonomic techniques, to provide high-performance, robust, and secure computing.
