Welcome

 

I joined the University of Delaware as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in Fall 2015. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in August 2015 from Wayne State University under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Grosu. My research interests include Edge Computing, Cloud Computing, Energy-Efficient Computing, Cyber-Physical Systems, Autonomous Vehicles, Electric Vehicles, and Game Theory.

I am on the Program Committee of ICDCS 2017 and ICPP 2017.

Multiple open positions are available: If you are interested in joining my group as a PhD student or a postdoc, please email me a recent copy of your CV.
