I am a Professor and Associate Dean in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at UMass Amherst. My research interests lie broadly in distributed systems and networking. I head the Laboratory for Advanced Systems Software here at UMass where we focus on building systems and understand them through modeling, analysis and experimentation. I also direct the newly established Center for Smart and Connected Society (CS2) at UMass.
I am an experimental Computer Scientist with a focus on distributed systems and networking. My current research projects focus on cloud computing, green computing, and energy informatics. I also maintain broad interests in operating systems and virtualization, storage and data management, IoT and sensor networks, mobile and multimedia computing, and Internet-scale systems.

I am not teaching this Fall. I will be teaching Distributed and Operating Systems (CompSci 677) in Spring 2018.
I have become more selective in my external professional service due to my internal role as Associate Dean.
I am serving on the Program Committee of Eurosys 2018 and ICDCS 2018 (Edge computing track). I recently co-chaired ACM APSys 2017. Previously, I have served as Program Chair or General Chair for fourteen conferences and workshops. Here is a list of conferences I have chaired.
I have served or am serving on the editorial boards of ACM Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems (TOMPECS), ACM Transactions on the Web (TWEB), Springer Multimedia Systems, Sustainable Energy, Grids and Networks, PeerJ Computer Science. I serve on the Steering Committee of ACM e-Energy and have previously served on the Steering Committee of ACM BuildSys and IEEE Trans. on Mobile Computing.
