Short Bio

Research Interests 

  • My research is in the general area of systems with the focus on resource management, performance optimization, system modeling and algorithm design for timing-constrained systems/applications. In particular, I have worked in the areas of real-time embedded systems, cloud systems, parallel and distributed systems and focused on performance, energy and reliability issues of such systems. Recently, I worked on low-power dependable computing, where an integrated management for energy and reliability were investigated. Moreover, a TIMER-Cloud framework for time-sensitive VM provisioning and a learning oriented user-level profiling-based performance prediction were studied as well. A more recent study focused on resource-constrained machine-learning techniques with the application for intelligent medical IoTs to support smart health and wellness.
