About Me

I am in my third year of Computer Science Ph.D. study at Johns Hopkins University. I am very fortunate to be advised by Soudeh Ghorbani. My research interests span around designing operating systems and host networking componenets for datacenter applications. I'm currently investigating the sources and implications of data center traffic burstiness.

Current Research

  • Microbursts are one of the hidden culprits of data center network latency. We are investigating ways to identify, measure and mitigate them.
  • Process scheduling is an old yet unsolved problem for data center hosts. With the emergence of kernel-bypass runtimes, new schemes are necessary to allow more efficient resource utilization while preserving the performance of latency-sensitive applications. We are currently investigting how micro-quanta scheduler tries to bring balance between fairness and responsiveness.
  • Power management is another area of interest for data center operators. We recently proposed in-application process scheduling for latency-critical datacenter applications to leverage application knowledge for core management and ultimately smarter CPU power saving.

Misc

When I'm away from my PC, I play soccer (goalkeeper indoors, full back outdoors!), play video games (Fable and Far cry fan!), or leaf through my favorite books (I'm a Tolkien fan). Let's chat if our interests align ;)
