Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 2005 to 2018 Employer: The Pennsylvania State University Title: Associate Professor Department: Computer Science and Engineering Responsibilities: - Co-direct the Computer Systems Laboratory where we carry out research at the intersection of cutting-edge technologies in hardware, systems software, and applications spanning a diverse spectrum of environments – from those in the enterprise-oriented server/storage devices to those in the embedded domain. In addition to enhancing performance – which has been the norm – our research addresses the increasingly important concerns of reducing power consumption, improving reliability/availability, and making systems easier to use and manage. Our research uses a combination of analytical modeling and simulation of these complex systems, on the one hand, and design, implementation, and experimental evaluation of realistic prototypes of these systems, on the other.

- Advise Ph.D. and M.S. students in the above research areas

- Teach graduate and undergraduate courses in operating systems, cloud computing, and a variety of other topics in computer systems.

- Serve as my department's graduate program chair

- Serve on program committees and editorial boards of ACM and IEEE conferences and journals; organize workshops and conferences on topics of my research expertise; serve on panels that review grant proposals submitted to federal agencies like the National Science Foundation.
