I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Stony Brook University, where I lead the PACE Lab.
I am broadly interested in systems and performance modeling. My research aims to improve system performance via analytical tools.
My recent projects include interference-aware performance modeling and management and dynamic provisioning of cloud-deployed applications.
Please see my research interests and publications below for more information.
Feel free to email me if you want to learn more about my research and are interested in joining my group.

Background:

[Top]

I was a Post Doctoral Researcher in the Cloud Optimization and Analytics group at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center from 2013 to 2014.
I completed my Ph.D. in 2013 from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University where I was advised by Prof. Mor Harchol-Balter.
My Ph.D. thesis, Dynamic Server Provisioning for Data Center Power Management, was awarded the 2013 SPEC Distinguished Dissertation Award.
I completed my undergraduate studies in 2007 from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.

Research Interests:

[Top]

I am interested in applying theory to systems. In particular, my research aims to leverage mathematical tools such as {Performance Modeling, Queueing Theory, Machine Learning, Control Theory} to analyze the behavior of systems such as {Distributed Systems, Cloud, Data Centers, ML Systems} and to optimize metrics of interest such as {Performance, Energy}.

Some of my current projects include:
