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. Currently, I am working on low-power dependable computing, where an integrated management for energy and reliability will be investigated. A TIMER-Cloud framework for time-sensitive VM provisioning is under investigate as well.
