I have a wide variety of research interests, mostly pertaining directly to data storage in supercomputing environments:

  • Parallel and distributed storage systems
  • Erasure coding and fault tolerance
  • Low-level (block or object) storage devices
  • Heterogeneous computing (e.g., GPUs, accelerators)


Ph.D. in Computer Science, University of Alabama at Birmingham, under the advisement of Dr. Anthony Skjellum.

Dissertation: A Highly Reliable GPU-Based RAID System
