I am an associate professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University, and a founding investigator of the Mass Open Cloud. My research is primarily in the areas of data storage systems and cloud computing, and especially the intersection of the two.

My current work focuses on research to enable open clouds – hybrid clouds combining multiple tenants and providers.

Interests

  • cloud computing
  • object storage and caching
  • flash and SMR translation layers
