Open positions: I am looking for self-motivated students interested in building scalable solutions. If you are interested in developing novel parallel/distributed solutions for challenging problems (impacting important domains like machine learning, big data, etc.), please email me a brief description about your work interests along with a copy of your CV.
I am interested in the broad area of Parallel & Distributed Computing including their Programmability, Performance, Scalability & Fault Tolerance. My current work lies at an intersection of large scale graph processing and relaxed consistency semantics. [Read More...]
I received my PhD in Computer Science from University of California, Riverside, where my PhD advisor was Rajiv Gupta. I also worked as a visitng student researcher at University of California, Irvine where I worked with Harry Xu.
