My current focus is on developing resource management frameworks for large datacenters. I am also interested in the economics of cloud computing.
I worked in the past on machine learning algorithms (specifically, reinforcement learning), and also on game theoreric models of communication networks (Diffserv, wireless MAC, cognitive radios, etc, see this mongraph for a summary). My publications can be found here.
I’ve had the privilege to work with excellent students:
- Virajith jalaparti (UIUC): Speeding up Distributed Request-Response Workflows
- Mikhail Rybalkin (Steklov Mathematical Institute): Speeding up Distributed Request-Response Workflows
- Jonathan Yaniv (Technion)
- Spandana Raj B (Undergrad from IIT Madras)
