Haryadi Gunawi is a Neubauer Family Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago where he leads the UCARE research group (UChicago systems research on Availability, Reliability, and Efficiency). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2009. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley from 2010 to 2012. His current research focuses on cloud computing reliability and new storage technology. He has won numerous awards including NSF CAREER award, NSF Computing Innovation Fellowship, Google Faculty Research Award, NetApp Faculty Fellowships, and Honorable Mention for the 2009 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award.
His research focus is in improving dependability of storage and cloud computing systems in the context of (1) reliability, wherein he is interested in combating non-deterministic concurrency bugs in cloud-scale distributed systems, (2) performance stability, wherein he is interested in building storage and distributed systems that are robust to "limping" hardware, and (3) scalability, wherein he is interested in developing approaches to find latent scalability bugs that only appear in large-scale deployments.
