Welcome

 

I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Delaware and the Director of the Cloud Computing Lab. I am also an Associate Director of the Sociotechnical Systems Center (SSC) (technological dimension) and an affiliated faculty member of the Data Science Institute. My research interests include Edge Computing, Cloud Computing, Energy-Efficient Computing, Cyber-Physical Systems, Autonomous Vehicles, Electric Vehicles, and Game Theory.


I am a Program Co-Chair (with Blesson Varghese) for ICFEC 2021, the 5th IEEE International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing. We welcome your submission and participation!
I am on the Program Committee of ICPP 2020, MASS 2020, and ICDCS 2019 (Edge Computing Track).
I also serve as the Chair of the Student Travel Awards for CCGrid 2020.

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.
