I am a Research Staff Member in Storage Systems Innovations Group. I graduated with a PhD. from Penn State in 2012. My research interests include distributed systems, key-value/object stores and caches, storage cache and tier management, non-volatile memories such as NAND flash SSDs, and virtualization platforms.
Currently, I am working on a project called cloudCache which utilizes SSDs to improve the storage performance of VM-based workloads in the cloud. I am also working on improving the resource utilization efficiency and load-balancing properties of key-value caches for cloud-scale web workloads.
