Research Interest

My general research interests are design, modeling, and performance evaluation of distributed systems and networks. Current research encompasses content delivery systems, peer-to-peer systems, wireless sensor networks, as well as workload and topology characterization of the Internet.

My Ph.D. research was recently featured in On Campus News.


For the past two years I have been Co-chair (with Martin Arlitt and Jerry Rolia) of GreenMetrics:
  • GreenMetrics '10 Workshop in conjunction with ACM SIGMETRICS, New York, NY, June 2010.
  • GreenMetrics '09 Workshop in conjunction with ACM SIGMETRICS/Performance, Seattle, WA, June 2009. (Proceedings appeared in ACM Performance Evaluation Review (PER), Special Issue on the 2009 GreenMetrics Workshop, 37, 4 (Mar. 2010).)
