I'm a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department of Stony Brook University; this is my 5th year. My research interests include resource virtualization and its deployment in cloud computing, management and performance modeling of cloud applications. I am working under the direction of Jennifer Wong. Since 2010 I spent some time doing intern at NEC Lab and VMware.
