I am a NSF/CRA Computing Innovation Fellow at Northwestern University, in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; I am a member of the Center for Ultra-scale Computing and Information Security (CUCIS), and I am working with Dr. Alok Choudhary.

I hold a Ph.D. (March 2009) in Computer Science from University of Chicago under the guidance of Dr. Ian Foster in the Distributed Systems Laboratory. I also obtained a Master of Science in Computer Science from University of Chicago in 2005, another Master of Science in Computer Science from Wayne State University in 2002, and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in 2000. My research work and interests are in the general area of distributed systems. My dissertation work focused on this relatively new paradigm of Many-Task Computing (MTC), which aims to bridge the gap between two predominant paradigms from distributed systems, High-Throughput Computing (HTC) and High-Performance Computing (HPC). My dissertation work focused on defining and exploring both the theory and practical aspects of realizing MTC across a wide range of large-scale distributed systems. I am particularly interested in efficient task dispatch and execution systems, resource provisioning, data management, scheduling, and performance evaluations in distributed systems. My work has been funded by the DOE Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (2005 - 2006, Contract DE-AC02-06CH11357), the NASA Ames Research Center Graduate Student Research Program (2006 - 2009, Grant Number NNA06CB89H), and most recently by the prestigious NSF/CRA CIFellows program (2009 - 2010, Award Number 0937060). My future work will focus on resource management in large scale distributed systems with a focus on many-task computing, data intensive computing, cloud computing, grid computing, and many-core computing.
