About Me


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at New Mexico Tech where I am also the Director of the Cloud Computing and Big Data (C2BD) Lab.

I received my Ph. D. from Virginia Tech. My research aims at developing techniques to make cloud platforms more efficient and, in particular, I am exploring new approaches to make cloud platforms support big data applications more efficiently
