I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at George Mason University. I am broadly interested in computer systems. My research covers a range of topics including distributed systems, storage systems, cloud computing, and internet of things. Currently I am working on a few exciting projects including: (1) caching for multi-tier NoSQL stores; (2) building better infrastructure support for Edge Computing and IoT; (3) exploiting NVM in HPC; (4) large-scale cluster scheduling; and (5) understanding and optimizing Docker ecosystem.
I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech, where I worked with Ali R. Butt. During my Ph.D. I spent two summers at IBM Research Almaden in 2013 and 2014, and six months at Dell EMC Princeton Office in 2015.

I am currently looking for motivated students to work with me on systems research. If you are a Mason student who is interested in doing systems research, please come talk to me. For students outside Mason, I encourage you to apply to our graduate program. I can be reached at email@example.com.
Our paper about flash cluster wear balancing is accepted by IPDPS'18.
