I am an assistant professor of Computer Science and Systems within the School of Engineering and Technology at the University of Washington - Tacoma. My research interests broadly encompass Cloud Computing, Distributed Systems, and Software Engineering.
Cloud and Distributed Systems (CDS) Research Lab
Our group engages in research spanning Serverless computing (FaaS), Containerization, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing, virtualization, performance and cost modeling of cloud application deployments, and cloud infrastructure management. By harnessing resource utilization metrics to characterize performance of applications and workloads running in the cloud, we develop and apply machine learning and statistical techniques to model application performance, address scaling, and improve autonomous resource management. Given a variety of ways applications can be deployed to cloud environments, our research aims to demystify the myriad of options to guide scientists and practitioners towards making informed deployment decisions that improve performance and availability while reducing hosting costs.
